I've have replace the crank sensor..... but I've noticed that when it throws the not starting fit the gauges on the dash do not register anything... When the gauges decide to work the van starts right up. So, after replacing the easy to replace ignition parts, which probably needed the up keep, I'm still in the same situation.... and no codes read out on the hand held Actron that I have..... Any ideas will be appreciated.... -
