Sounds like an earth fault same happened to mine check battery earths clean and fixed securely to earth strap or bar sometimes easier to find it with someone in van usually comes on when waggled they will let you know Good Luck Buddy..Dinger.

Find the red positive lead from battery inside the van. There should be an in-line fuse holder there, check that. If it is ok or there is no fuse holder (not all vans have one), check both red and black earth leads for damage. Mice have been known to gnaw through cables.
