Hi i'm back again

This time it's the second one that's the problem.
Basically the van will not turn over, any advice.

What van? What engine? What age?

All the help you had last time, and you just scrapped the van instead of following advice :roll:

Good luck :|

Before we scrapped the other van, i manage to get it unlocked by following the advice from here and because it's a non-runner, we scrapped it after.

Funnily enough, you never said that you had got it unlocked :?

today i had a look at the van and this is what happened.

i applied some power via jump leads and it gave it enough power to unlock it.
i left it to charge via the jump leads for 10 mins, and when i went back it had enough power to light the dash and for all the other thing (radio, lights, heater etc)
i went to turn it over and it just clicked. so i left it another half hour and tried again....once again clicking.
i did some research on fordtransit.org and it said to clean the terminals on the battery and the cable that connects to the battery.
after i had cleaned the battery i re-installed it and connected the cables...nothing, it had no life what so ever.
i got the jump leads back on and left it to charge for 1 hour, i went back and it didn't have any power in the van battery (except 2 volts)
the jumper cable were defiantly connected right.
i got out a volt-meter and put it on the car battery, it read 14v and then tried it on the van battery and it said 2v.
Is there a fuse gone or is the battery dead forever or what. i will be going back next wednesday. :?: :?: :?:

If you take it off top the water up, tap water will do for topping up a little.
And give it a good charge trickle charge for 24,48 hours it may revive it.
Charging by the alt on a running engine isn't the same as trickle charging.

It's clicking, because it doesn't have enough power to turn over :|

It's always worth a try to charge the battery before buying a new one :)
