VAN SEEMS TO 'CHOKE OUT'

The van otherwise runs great. Sometimes upon starting it seems to 'choke out'. Loses gas or something and just cuts off. It sometimes also does this while driving, mostly while idling or going < 35-40 mph. It is happening more frequently. When it happens it can take a few time until it finally keeps running. Also not sure if related, this past week there seems to be an infrequent short in the elctrical system noticed only by the dashboard panel browning in and out. This has only happened a couple of times during night driving. Any ideas?
