Try boosting the van.If that works then you either need to clean the cables and battery posts or you need a battery.If boosting it does not work then you may need a starter or the cables to it have came loose,also the engine ground could be the culprit,if this is true then put your booster cables in this configuration;positive to positive and negative from the boosting cars negative post to your engine's block,find a good clean grounding point on the block and hook the clamp there.If the van starts then clean the factory ground point,replace the cable end,or replace the cable.Let me know if none of this info helps and i will give you more things to try.
You need to do a complete tune-up on the van. If the battery is 4 years old or older then replace the battery. If not check fluid level in each cell, if low you can fill to correct level with distilled water. then you can charge the battery. Using a volt meter you can check the alternator at the positive post on battery with the van running to see if it is charging correctly. You should have 14.5 volts to 15 volts. check the air filter and replace if dirty. Check the spark plugs and replace old plugs. replace the fuel filter on van. hope this will help you.
