Complaint - Electrical System

WHEN PULLING INTO A PARKING SPOT THE VAN STALLED AND WOULDNT RESTART. IT SEEMED THE BATTERY WAS TOTALLY DRAINED SO I WENT TO REPLACE IT AND FOUND THAT THE BATTERY CABLES WERE SCORCHING HOT. WHEN I INSTALLED THE REPLACEMENT BATTERY IT WAS AT NIGHTR SO I SAW SPARKS DOWN ON THE LOWER PORTION TO THE BATTERY HARNESS. I THEN HAD THE VAN TOWED INTO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY INTIALLY FOUND NO DEFECTS, TOLD ME THE BATTERY WASNT INSTALLED PROPERLY. I EXPLAINED AGAIN THE ISSUE AND THEY RECHECKED THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM AND FOUND NO DEFECTS. I HAD REPEATED ISSUES OF THE SAME TYPE OVER THE NEXT TWO DAYS SO I TOOK IT BACK AND THEY FOUND SHORTED BATTERY CABLES HTIS TIME. I WANTED OTHER ASTRO OWNERS TO KNOW OF THE ISSUE TO SEE IF THEY HAD RUN INTO THE SAME TYPE OF PROBLEM. I AM CURRENTLY WORKING TO GET MY TOWING FEE REIMBURSED BY GM BUT THEY ARE BEING A LITTLE DIFFICULT AT THIS POINT.
