When I first go to start my van, I crank the ignition and it does not turn over. I do this for a few seconds and then stop. When I try to start it again, the van fires right up. If I go a couple of hours in between, it still starts. It does not want to start if it sets about 6 to 8 hours.

I saw something similar to this on a 1991 dodge van a few days ago.. turns out it was the battery. It was odd, because it cranked over fine and had spark and fuel, but would not start. If your battery is good, then confirm that your fuel pressure is ok
when you say car lost power bought a new battery.sound like alternator not charging battery.with car running your voltage at battery should be 13.5 volts or 14.5 volts it not alternators need replacing.have garage replace alternator if faulty because 1993 to 1994 cars if you disconnect battery car would lose memory causing car not to idle.the car will stall out at a stop light or stop sign whole lot.it would relearn itself but the stalling out dangerous around a lot of traffic.
When the key is turned to ignition there is a "Prime" mode that the computer rnus. the pump will only run for a few short seconds. If you crank the engine you should get power to fuel pump the entire time you crank the engine.
After you replace the ignition switch turn the key to start the car and release leave the key were it stops after trying to start wait 10 minutes until security light goes out turn key to full off position then repeat the above procedure two more times for a total of three on the 3rd attempt to start car wait for light to go out then turn key to full off positoion wait 10 seconds then try to start car body control module should learn new pass code and the car should start.

Take the Original Ignition key out to the car. Get in it and turn the key on. Every light should light up like your going to start it. The factory security light will flash. Leave the ignition on until it stops flashing. Should take about 10-15 min to do it. once it does, shut the key off and then turn it over to start the car.
