Most often that condition is caused by the rubber hoses that connect the caliper to the "hard" brake lines at the chassis. The hose may appear good but internally it collapses and prevents pressure from releasing. After correcting the problem be sure to replace the front pads as likely they are burned. If the pedal pulsates replace the front rotors as well, or, if they are still in relatively good shape, have them re-surfaced.

You should know that using ANY Dexron/Mercon fluid is not recomended, and has shown to lead to transmission failure.

MOPAR ATF +3 is the factory fluid. But, MOPAR has made a new fluid called ATF +4. Chrysler has posted a TSB saying that ATF +4 should be used now.

It goes straight to the mains fuse box on the firewall inside the engine bay and from there to the battery.
But if you smelled burned then it has surely fried other wires - you will gonna have to cut the loom open, find the shorted wire, inspect all the wires around it and replace the shot ones.

Really dont need to know color of wire for this system is simple. On the switch (left rear corner on transmission) there are three wires. one wire is power, one allows it to start in park or neutral and the other is for the reverse lights. If I remember correctly the two outer terminals operate the reverse lights. Find the power lead and jump to each of the other two to determine which is for the reverse lights. Likely you will find that the switch is bad and there is no wiring problem. Make sure that reverse lights have good grounds as well.

Check your fuel pressure, and EGR valve and sensor. Doesnt sound like a spark problem since it starts right back up. You can go to Kragen and check and get a fuel pressure test kit.

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.
