Start the van to keep it going.
Then, on my return trip, just as I stopped at the toll station in hockset, the van was just dead.
I want to restart it but nothing-
I mean absolutely no, not even a dangerous signal.
I stopped and jumped-
Restart, but the cable gets very hot.
I called AAA and dragged the van home.
I had the Van sit for a few days to "cool down" and then restart without problems. Help! A.
The first thing I want to see is the battery cable.

From your description, the start-up motor gear drive can wear out.
When removing the starter for inspection, a good technician will also check if the engine flywheel is likely to be damaged.
If the tooth on the flywheel is damaged, the transmission needs to be removed to correct the problem.
