the instrument panel may be failing. it can be checked by a shop with a scan tool. the first thing would be the connections at the back but being as you have multiple failures, i am leaning towards the instrument panel it self.

the noise under the van could be a lot of things. the most common one is the cat converter shield vibrating.
as far as the ignition switch goes, it very well could be but must be confirmed with a diag from a shop familiar with these diags.

Thanks Roy, I took it to the shop so hopefully I will find out soon. I was told it coild be a crankcse sensor as well.
