Hello there, you have a few different things going on with your Ford E-350. You did not state if the vehicle will start or not with these problems. If the vehicle will not start and it has these faults the most likely cause is the battery or the battery cables. If the van starts but the lights won’t turn on or shift out of neutral than it is likely there is a problem with the wiring, neutral safety switch, or ignition switch. A qualified technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to fully inspect the vehicle and make any repairs required to get your vehicle running properly.
