sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.

try cleaning the connector that goes to the fuel pump, sometimes they corrode on inside. If that does not fix, test the wires feeding fuel pump with a multi meter until the condition shows itself again, if voltage drops to zero or very low then wiring problem, if voltage is unchanged with problem and fuel pump is not working and connectors are all clean, try replacement of fuel pump.

Its possible that the Starter is bad. But check your Starter relay first. If you use jumper cables and bridge the main cable on one side of the Relay to the opposite side, and it works, the Relay is bad. About $15 for the part.
When you test for Battery voltage, hook the POS end of your charger to the Battery side of the Relay. If your Battery post is dirty, you may have 12 or more Volts at the Battery, but nothing at the Solenoid. Then you just need to clean the cable and try it.
If you get the Van to run, you can always go to Autozone or Oreillys and have them do a Starter draw test. Then you will be confident about the Starters' condition and you will not have to remove it for nothing. The tests are free as well as them using a scanner on your vehicle.

After you kill it, when you try to start it back up, does the starter turn the motor? Or is it froze up (will not turn over)?
