However I will try to help to the best of my ability. I will give you an honest effort addressing what I can about your concern.

. Hi,Chris let me hear your findings on my van problem.
Thanks for getting back with me.
Have you checked all fuses to verify none are blown?
Will the engine at least crank, or does nothing at all occur when the key is in the start position?
checked the fuses and the in-dash fuse for starter were loose. I drove the van for about 45 minutes and it ran good. About 2 hours later I started the engine and it sounds like it's got a hole in the muffler the sound is coming from the engine area. The check engine light came on with other warning lights such as (brake,ABS,battery).When I drive the van it accelerate but feels restricted and is burning more gas.It also blew out the new low beam light when the warning lights came on.Everything else is working fine.
Under the hood, check for any vacuum leaks that can make an exhaust noise as well as effect power and fuel economy. Also check for a any black soot o n the exhaust system which would indicate a leak. If any is found prior to the converters, then you may have a clogged converter.
I am not good on electrical concerns on this model, so you may need to take it to shop for that.
