Thanks for the response, not sure about the alarm (it is the limited T&C), i will try the key on and off thing. What about using starting fluid, should it run a few seconds if i spray that in there.does it have factory security alarm? if it does is the security light in the dash light up? have you tried cycling the key on and off to cycle the fuel pump a few times to 'prime' the system?
In the Gen III vans there can be a bad solder joint on the instrument cluster that causes the alarm/no-start condition (along with a lot of other problems). Not sure if this affects 2002s or not...Thanks for all of the replies, the van started this morning and seems to be running fine. Maybe it was just a security system shutdown. Any tips of what would have triggered it.
