most of these models have 2 oil lights.The red one is oil pressure,if flashing or on when engine is running,it is usually serious.check oil level,but usually caused by blocked pickup screen(a common toyota fault) when services aren't done.The orange oil light is tripped by an oil level sensor on the side of the sump when the oil level is low.If the oil level is ok,note this is a common fault especially if oil changes have been missed,and/or a petrol engine oil used and sludge builds up,sometimes using an additive for flushing prior to oil change can help,but may not work on 1st oil change.

This is slightly counter-intuitive, but the plastic lens needs to go in and up before it comes out. After removing the two screws, use something thin and flat to pull down on the underside painted part of the wing between the two screws. A little bit of prying downwards. Two raised lips become visible - they are holding the lens from being able to be pushed up and in. A second pair of hands could help. Then use your thumbs on the lens close to the screws, gripping with your fingers on the top of the wing and squeeze up. POP!

There is are 3 bolts securing the starter motor, the starter motor is located under the passenger seat area and should be accessed from under the vehicle. The key is to get the van high enough to be able to slide comfortable under the side of the van to access all bolts, only the bottom bolt has a bolt and a nut the other 2 bolts have threads which secure the starter motor onto the engine there is one bolt at the bottom, one bolt in the middle and one bolt near the very top you will have to undo the 2 x 10mm bolts that hold the dip stick first to be able to get to the middle and top bolt of the stater motor. take your time and have some patience you will get it it just takes practice.

I am unsure if this is the only problem with the kick down cable but you may need to remove the bottom pan of the transmission to be able to disconnect or reconnect if you cant access it the change the kick down cable from the outside the transmission.

It sounds like you have a loose connection either grab a torch and look under the dash as much as possible to see if any connections are loose or take it to an auto electrician and and ask for a quote to check out the issue.

Likely the ignition switch is not rotating completely into the off position. If your key is extremely worn, it may be possible it can be removed without the switch exactly in the off position. Suggest trying a different (less used) key and see if problem goes away.

Else try to make sure it is in off position (clock off) before removing key. If you find that's the problem you may need new keys or switch or both.

The shaft has excessive clearance inside the distributor. Replace the distributor with a known good one or pick up a new one.
