No start condition do below

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

Understand what you are saying put on scanner no codes. Fuel pump, cam/crank sensor and coil don; t explain why my gauges went dead. Plus the no bus code. I am thinking something electrical. Runs great untill dash freaks out.

What I've suggested was for this: van keeps on stalling now won't start, as for the gauges its defintely an electrical problem. Could be the ignition switch itself

The no start info is good advise but I think the electrical problem is the key with no gauges and odometer flashig no bus. As far as the ignition switch I already changed the electrical box for the ignition because I here they have alot of problems. Do you have any more sugestions. Please help me. Have you ever heard of the no bus thing. My snap-on scanner says to check the iod fuse. But I could not find the location anywhere.I only found a relay marked iod and I changed it with no luck I pulled all fuses under hood and in van all where good.
