I can only think of 2 belts: the timing belt and the serpentine belt. If you look on the passenger side of the engine compartment you should see a broad belt with many small grooves. Check to see if it feels like it has tension on it. If you push or pull on it you should not be able to pull out a lot of slack. If this belt checks out then you have a busted timing belt or chain, depending on the engine.
You can probably do the serpentine belt yourself with a few simple tools but Unless you're a passable shade-tree mechanic I'd let someone else do the timing belt/chain.

Fuse box location?


"The Totally Integrated Power Module is located in the engine compartment near the battery. Refer to the applicable "Engine Compartment" illustration in this section. This centre contains cartridge fuses and mini-fuses. A label that identifies each component may be printed or embossed on the inside of the cover"

What can cause total battery discharge?


Leaving any light(s) or appliance on such as the radio or something plugged in cigarette lighter socket, bad alternator / serpentine drive belt, frozen belt pulley, bad alternator. Be sure your underhood light, map light, courtesy or dome light and cargo light are shutting off properly and not causing a parasitic drain. If you got a battery light on the dash while driving or engine running, probably replace the alternator.

Serpentine belt diagram:


The belt routing diagram is located on the top radiator cross member by the hood latch. You should see it when you open the hood. If it is not there, all Chrysler, Dodge, and Plymouth minivans, from 1993 to at least 1999, used the same 3.3L engine setup, so find someone with one and look for the diagram where I described.
