I started this usually very reliable van and it immediately died and the van then acted as if the battery was completely dead. No lights, radio, horn, starter, etc. I previously acted this question was advised to replace the BCM. I bought a used one on warranty. Upon installation, the van powered up. Lights, windows, etc, but upon engaging the ignition the whole electrical system went dead again. Upon disconnecting and reconnecting the battery, the system powers up each time, but goes dead when I try to start it. Evidently the BCM is functioning at least in part. What is my next fix? I just don't have lots of money to spend, so I'm trying to fix it myself.
