Starter motor. Try and give it a bang with something metal from underneath the van.

I've no personal experience of this problem, but it sounds like a failure in the starter solenoid/relay.

Take a look in the second half of this thread where Pompier in 2013 reported similar symptoms:

or even:

Good luck!

I had the same and replaced the solenoid. Got a Denso one from ebay, they are now about £20. Can DIY or about an hours labour at your local garage.
