Unhappy Can't boost my van

I have a 98 voyager. Until yesterday, no problems starting at all. I turn the key and get the radio/lights etc, but it wont crank the engine. I decided to boost it. Didn't seem to make a difference.

Im dumbfounded. I have never heard of it doing that when boosting.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Are you getting any response at all when turning the key, either with or without the boost? Possible causes: starter bad, battery and/or starter connections corroded, ignition switch.

Post It was a corroded wire

It was a corroded wire at a fusible link. Part cost $2, but I gave up and got someone to do it as I felt I was out of my element.
