Very strange. Both vans die. Hot weather.

  1. Nope.
    Let's put it this way. I was concerned that his diagnosis
    was wrong, but, so far the van is working fine.

  2. Corroded battery terminals!
    Not visible without disconnecting the cables.

    The mechanic sanded down the terminals and voila!
    He thinks that when jumpstarting from that battery,
    the load caused the existing hidden corrosion to "glaze".
    But that doesn't explain why the problem didn't appear
    until 24 hours after the jumpstart.
    Very strange.
