some vehicles if the battery goes bad or shorts out,the vehicle will shut down its computers and leave you sitting.They will not run on just an alternator anymore, they must have a good battery and charging system
Sounds as if dimmer slider/switch is going to ground on this model the headlight switch should have a dimmer thumbwheel, if it is all the way up and then you feel the indent and that should turn the inside domelamp on, if it does not the switch is bad. also check your vanity mirror covers, sometimes the little pins that shot off the light when you close the mirror covers stick open and run your battery down over night or in a few hours. Charge battery and then check these lights first, depress white pins to shut off.
I had this same problem a year ago. My headlight went out and had problems with the key getting stuck all at the same time. Replaced headlight and ignition switch, problem solved. Yesterday I noticed I had no breaklight, today I have no power to the instument panel again. ?? Not sure if I will have to replace the ignition switch again.
sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.
