If it continues have system checked by service station.The check charging system could be temporary until Battery is fully charged.If this caused any damage I would be suprised, we all have had battery drains from time to time.Good Luck.

YOU NEED TEST THE WIREING TO THE ALTERNATOR.IF IT CHECKS OUT HAVE THE ALTERNATER REPAIRED OR REPACED,THE VAN IS SHUTTING DOWN BECAUSE ALL THE SENSORS IN THE VAN ARE NOT GETTING THE POWER THEY NEAD

That's not unusual with electrical parts. They can fail with no symptoms. And your symptoms say it is indeed a bad alternator.

Sounds to me that your battery has shorted out and will not take a charge.Disconnect the battery and try to charge it, then check to see if it has taken power with a volt meter. A shorted battery will take all the power from the alternator and run it to ground leaving no power to run the car. Also check the alternator output with a volt meter after you have checked the battery as a shorted battery can burn out the alternator.
