Ok! look behind the battery. lift it out and look at the wiring there. There is a junction of either three or four can't remember back there and called fuseable links. one could be bad OR the terminals could be corroded. Find someone with a good meter and who knows how to use it start by looking a with the meter at the top of every fuse in each fuse box there is a spot that one lead from the meter touches the metal inside the fuse. The first place to look is start at the supply (the battery) make sure the terminals are clean, go to fuse box Make sure there is juice getting to the fuse box with meter.
A test light will also help. but an inexpensive meter can be found at any auto supply or walmart type store. Wish I could help more but at this point I would have to be there with my meter. good luck I hope your staying warm hope your in the southern states and not up in the north without van running.

What He said. If that's not it look at the visible links coming off the starter.

I would grab a meter and start with the battery and work your way towards the fuse box. There are obviously multiple circuits that are not being powered. Of course with your push to start button that is all aftermarket so who knows what all has been done with the wiring.

The aftermarket push button starter stuck in my head for some reason.

I would still start at the battery, but I'm wondering if the ignition switch is going bad and that is why they added a push button for your starter. Just a thought.
