Question about 1999 Plymouth Voyager
Van runs and drives fine. no start in morning dead battery,festarts after a jump and running and driving
Make sure your fan belt is correctly tensioned .If so,remove one battery lead and with every thing switched off tap the battery lead on the battery teminal.If you see sparking this will indicate a voltage draw on the battery . My guess is that you probably need a new battery.Take it to a battery sales place and let them check it for you.

SOURCE: possibly wiring issues
With the indulgence of ginko.
I have to agree on your supposition that the current problem is an electrical, however, the initial "check engine soon light" indicates engine/mechanical problems.
The first corrective move would then be to restore the car to that initial state and thereafter work on the "check engine soon light".
Course of action suggested:
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 1992 Voyager won't start
The first thing I try if this happens when I am around, is to press the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor to let the engine gulp air.
Often, especially after an engine is warm, it gets too much fuel, which can gag the plugs and prevent them from firing.
Providing too much air, dries them out and often a stalled or stubborn engine will start.
Hard starting of a warm engine can also occur if it was turned off fairly hot and the cooling fan switch has failed. In many vehicles this switch will either keep the fan running after the ignition is turned off, or restart in response to the normal rise in block temperature due to stored heat heating the coolant after there is no circulation. The failure of this fan to run for few minutes after the engine is stopped can also expose a tendency toward vapor lock. Vapor lock occurs in a fuel line too close to hot engine components and the liquid gasoline goes to a gaseous state forming a bubble in the line momentarily that can block the flow of gas.
Other points to check if the above doesn't apply: pull any spark plug lead and position it near a chassis ground point and have someone turn the key while you watch to see if there is any spark at all. If there isn't, several items could be at fault; ignition module, the ECU, a failed high voltage lead from coil to distributor (if these are present in your car), a failed ignition switch, ballast resistor (if present).
If the engine uses an electric fuel pump, it may have failed. If the engine has fuel injection, there is normally a valve on the fuel rail (which may be capped) that can be depressed like a tire valve to see if fuel in present in the fuel rail and under some pressure.

Just a shot in the dark here. Mikuni carbs were problamatic on that engine. I remember them well. They had internal vacuum leaks and diapragm leaks just like you describe. I dont kn ow if you can get it any more but the fix used to be a new reman carb. they were not rebuildable. But I always wondered why you coul not have a base plate adapter made by a machine shop to adapt any other simpler carb to it? as long as your cfm rating was the same--ya know? Like take a holley 2 barrel off a k-car and adapt it on. Anyway I hope I helped. But that is what it sounds like. Carb replacement. Thanks

sounds like the electrolyte levels in your battery are extremely low which will cause it to not hold a charge except over the day when the alternator is constantly recharging it, ask a mechanic to either top it up or buy a new battery

I have no idea about the factory alarm resetting itself, but I DO have experience with having someone leave lights on and jumping the battery the wrong way. Unless you are 100% positive this is no the case, make sure it was not fried on the jump. If the cables were crossed, you might have some wires, therefore rendering your on-board computers to ****. =) Good Luck.
Also, contact a dealer via PHONE (so they can not trick you into being charged by looking at your van) in regards to factory alarm.
