SOURCE: Lights are on...nobody home.
It could be the transmission range switch is bad. Try starting in neutral instead of park. Jiggle the shift lever in park and/or neutral while trying to start. If this works, you'll want to change out the switch. If not, note that the transmission range switch allows power to operate a coil in the starter cut out relay which latches contacts closed thus sending power to the starter solenoid. The starter cut out relay could be bad--its located on the backside of the driver's kick panel fuse block. You could check the relay coil with your ohm meter.

I'm surprised a dealership made that mistake. Honda did start making engines to take oil until around 2003. I would go back and have them put the correct oil in the van. 5W-20 is not as thick as 5w-30, so the engine may start to make louder noises down the road. Just stick with 5w-30 for what the engine was made for.
