Default Starting Problem with 2002 T/C

2002 Chrysler Town and Country EX, Transmission A.T., 3.8L, FWD

I am having trouble starting my van. I had replaced the starter, starter relay. Couldn't get it to start. Managed to get it started (by rocking it back and forth) and took it to the dealer and had them replaced a 1195DWRNL sensor, since I was told the PRDNL sensor was a possible problem. Drove the car home from the dealer after work was completed. Thought that was the end of it all.

Went outside the next day and same thing happened...can't get it to start.
No power to starter. I have power to everything else but I can't start the engine. I tried rocking it back and forth again but no luck this time.

I just don't know what else to do. Can anyone help? I want to try all possible solutions before I call a towing service and have it towed to the dealership for them to work on it.

Any information offered would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

see where u are loosing power at the starter relay either at the B+ from the ign switch or teh ground on the coil side

That was a bad idea to tell the dealer u want something replaced because u think that is the issue or any place for that matter U pay for there know how and experience on finding probs let them do there job if U go in asking for something and its not it then its your dime.

FYI to get it started turn key on and at the starter relay jump pin 30 and 87 it will turn the starter to make it start up for u.

Default jumped pins 30 and 87

the starter kicked in after I jumped the pins but the engine still would not run like I was getting no fire to the plugs or if it is something else I just don't know the key is in the run position.

So what do I try next now that I got the starter to run how do I get the engien to run now ????
