Try changing the coil- sometimes they get hot and break down- once they cool off vehicle will start and run until they get hot again

While I am Driving my steering wheel locks up and my van shuts off randomly..?

I would check belt tension on the power steering pump and the alternator. If the alternator belt is slipping, the battery will become discharged and the computer won't have enough voltage to operate the ignition system.

In this case, are the headlights getting dim?

I have a 1992 Dodge Ram Van 318 ci. It died while driving. No ignition, no check engine light, starter won't crank. Battery is good, cleaned posts, changed ignition switch. Still nothing, any ideas?

There is a starter solenoid between the battery and the starter. Check that to see if it has gone bad. It will not set a light. you can jumper from the power lead to the starter post to see if it engages. Be sure you are in neutral if this is a standard shift because you will be bypassing the neutral switch. The solenoid is on the firewall or well well depending on your options configuration.

Hope this helps

Dodge Ram B250 1994 - has a Starting Problem

if you van has a security system in it, it could be causing this problem. they usually disable the starter circuit. Paul has listed good places to start. but if they don't fix it do this: when your trying to start but its not working have some one check voltage at the starter. there are 3 points to check 1: where battery cable connects 2: where starter connects to solenoid 3: small wire that operates solenoid. if there is voltage at all three point replace starter it has a shorted / open spot on armature. voltage at 1 and 3 but not 2 replace solenoid. voltage at 1 but not at 3 and you have already checked the items Paul identified check wiring between neutral safety switch and solenoid.
