You need to check the charging system. Sounds like vehicle not charging, running on battery. May need an alternator.
All I have ever owned are Ford windstars, they have treated me very well. You have an alternator problem. If it was the battery the van would not deliver any charge at all once it becomes insufficent enough to do so (Ford = smart ) So this is your alternator.
