It sound to me like the starter solenoid is bad. If you can remove the starter yourself you should be able to repair the problem. You will need to remove the terminal cover from the solenoid(be careful because there are wires connected to the underside of those terminals so do not force it.) If you look at the back of the terminals you will probably see that the inside part of the bolt is burned. loosen the nuts that hold the terminals and rotate them so that the burned sections are to the outside then tighten the nuts back. (not too tight because you can break the plastic) You can test the starter before you put it back in the van (after reassembling the starter itself of course) by connecting a set of jumper cables from the battery to the starter. Negative gets clipped to any good metal tab (usually where the mounting bolts go is a good spot) and the Positive cable goes to the big terminal where you first removed the cable from. touch a screwdriver to the smaller terminal and then touch the screw driver shaft to the + CABLE CLIP (not the terminal because you can damage the threads if it arcs) Be sure to have a good grip on the starter because if it works then it will jump. And keep your fingers out of the hole where the gear (Bendix) is because when you bridge the contacts the Bendix will pop forward and will shred your fingertips.

In order to reach the negative terminal to the battery in a 2000 Vebture (I have one) you must first remove the fuse housing. The fuse housing is a large black box that sits atop the battery. There os a single bolt that holds it in place located in fron of the battery bolted into the lip of the motor bay. Unscrew this, then unhook the fuse housing from the cross bar running from the back roght to the front of the motor bay. This is a tight fit so watch your knuckles. Once the fuse housing is out, the negative terminal is located on the backside of the battery. It is a tight squeeze black is negative, red is positive.

The starter motor on a car takes a lot of energy, you may be able to use the radio but not have enough power for the starter. You also might not be able to start it because the motor's starter or it's relay is bad. So here's what to do:
Check the connections on the battery, try loosening the connections and moving them around a bit, then tighten them down good.
Next go try to start it up again. If it still doesn't respond, turn your headlights on and see if they are still bright. If they are, then I would look into the starter or the starter relay.
The relay is in a box somewhere under your hood, possibly with some motor related fuses. Take the cover off and look at the under side of it. The cover should have a sticker displaying which relays do what. Now look for the air conditioner relay. Check to see if the air conditioner and starter relays have the same number printed or stamped on them. ONLY if the numbers mach, put the air conditioner relay in place of the starter relay, and try to start it again.
If you still get nothing, then it is either a bad starter or wire somewhere. On this car it may be a bit difficult to find and reach, but try to get to the starter on the bottom of the car. You can find pictures online of what it looks like if you are not sure. Play with the wires and knock on the starter with something hard like a rock or hammer. It doesn't take too much to do it, even a firm punch can do it, just don't break it. If this works then the starter is bad and needs serviced or replaced.
If there is still no response after this, there is nothing more you can do unless you are capable of taking things apart and checking the wiring. Good luck!
