The "BCM" module on your van has become unreliable.
The BCM is the "Body Control Module" that all these systems go through. The issue is that these are cold soldered and after a time the solder joints break on the computer connection. It is located behind the fusebox underneath the steering wheel.
If you know someone who can solder. You can use an 8mm and a 10mm socket to remove the BCM. Open it up and resolder the joints with a soldering iron. After that everything should be fine.
It is easier than it sounds.

BODY CONTROL MODULE
REMOVAL

Check door switch connection and operation.
If the door switch is part of the door lock mechanism, within the door itself, then remove door panel, disconnect the mechanism's electrical connector and re-check that the interior light no longer comes on with that door ajar. If it doesn't, then you likely have a faulty door lock mechanism, which you will have to replace.
This faulty switch will also have the affect on your random central locking function.


This is not likely connected to the engine performance issue.

it sounds like you may have a door switch going bad or in need to adjustment, the car thinks the door is ajar and then cycles the locks. the hard part may be to figure out which switch is making it act up.

Hi, my name is adam. By the way your descrpion says, you are having difficulty with the door ajar. My solution is to take a pink eraser and clean off the sensors on each door. Sometimes road dirt and grime get in there and screw it up. Thank you.
