1st thing to check is the condition of the pedal switch in the drivers footwell, its a simple 2 wire device which switches the lights directly so check that there's power there with a meter and see that its switching correctly

if this is OK then go to the back of the van and check that the light earth point is OK and tightly secured to the body with a clean connection

you can also check that there's 12V at the lights with the pedal pressed
