I only see one fuse block for your van, but there may be some relays in the engine compartment. Which circuit were you interested in?

    Thank you for telling me only one fuse box! I thought I was going nuts!

    The problem is this: It will not crank. Battery good, headlights work, blower motor for heater works dome lights work, but no dash lights, fuel pump does not turn on. I double checked all the fuses in the fuse panel.

    There is a starter relay--maybe under the dash. Recommend you try test #2 in the following link to start with. Then let me know what you find out.

    Ok thank you. I will have to find the relay cause I dont know where it is exactly

    here are the relays behind the battery:

    to bypass the relay, pull it out and connect the red and brown wires using a paper clip in the terminals. This will verify starter/solenoid operation. If that's good, interrogate the relay socket to see why it isn't closing. Use a 12 volt test light with the clip connected to battery positive and probe the brown wire with the yellow stripe. If the safety interlock is good, the test light should light. Next ,test the ignition switch by moving the light clip to a chassis ground and probe the yellow wire while someone turns the key to start. If the switch is working, the light should come on.

    Please let me know if you have any questions. Just trying now to see why it isn't cranking, then we'll check on the fuel pump.

    Thank you. I located the relay. It has one hot lead, but I do not know enough about them to test if the relay itself is good. I am guessing this relay is a dealership item, since I could not find it on Autozone site. I will keep you informed. Thank you again for your help to date, I at least have a direction to go in now.

    You can get those relays at any parts store. Just go to autozone with the relay in hand--they will have it in stock. You can also swap them around as long as they fit the socket. So you can, say, borrow one of the A/C relays to see if it will work as the starter relay. Here is a post on relays if you are curious about them:

    I realize I may be taking you beyond your comfort zone, but I will not tell you to do anything risky. If you're not comfortable that's OK, or you can ask more questions until you're comfortable. We're here to help you do it yourself, but not to MAKE you do it yourself. Cannot do that over the internet anyway :o)

The fuse panel is located in the engine compartment. It's called the integrated power module and is located on the drivers side near the fender next to the battery. It has a black cover over it and should have the fuse layout located under the lid.
There is no fuse box inside the van.

Fuses will be up under dash on drivers side, you'll see a black panel that you remove to get at them, and there is also a fuse/relay box under the hood on drivers side near strut tower. Map/labels for fuse/relay box under hood is on the underside of the cover.
