Sounds like the cable connections at the battery are not clean and tight, or a problem with power to the starter post, or the negative connection. The cig lighter is on a circuit of its own. Most everything else goes thru the key switch. The headlights are on a direct circuit too. But everything has to go thru the main battery cables.
sound like battery has weak or battery terminals and post need cleaning. have battery charged and checked, if battery good. alternator not charging battery. if battery over 5 years old more likely battery is bad.if battery too weak head lights wont turn on battery dead this time of year if battery old. cold weather will finish it out.
The instrument cluster in this van is really a computer display and it has malfunctioned. This is a common complaint on this van and you must remove the cluster and have it rebuilt to cure the problems. Check the WEB for repair sources. They can also provide complete instructions on removal free of charge.
This sounds like the battery may be weak or a bad connection. I would start by have the battery checked or try jump starting the car, try jumpimg it and see if that will make it start, if it starts then you may have a charging or battery problem, seeeing that this car is over 10yrs old and if the battery is the same one that came with the car then i would have to think you may have a bad battery. good day
do a gauge test. turn off the key and hold the trip meter reset knob. while you are holding the knob, turn the key to ACC position and hold knob for 10 seconds. this will put the cluster into self diag mode. after that happens, let go of the knob and just push it slowly / repeadly and observe the cluster assy. It should be changing and all kinds of stuff should be happening. Don't be scared, you can get out of the self diag mode simply by turning the key off again. Test gauges since those are part of the CAN cyctem also. If NG that you may need a new cluster assy.
