The van stalled and when I turned the key to the start position nothing happens. Let it sit for a little while and it will start but only runs for about 30 seconds and then stalls again. Replaced the crankshaft position sensor and that did not solve the problem

If the starter doesn't even crank the engine there's no need to be looking at the crankshaft position sensor. Look at the battery cables, especially where the smaller positive one bolts to the under-hood fuse box, and the smaller negative one bolts to the body. If there's a large fuse bolted to the fuse box, be sure those nuts are tight.
