I don't think this vehicle came with that feature, according to what my mom told me, originally it was just a plastic cover that was there, however that cover went missing.

The Vehicle Information Center goes there....yes it's made of plastic. Somewhere in that hole will be a plug. I think it's blue and it might be stuffed behind the cluster. If one of those vans didn't come with one, there would be no hole or cover, just solid dash.

Thanks for the info, I looked to see if there was a "blue plug" however there is only one plug and that is directly connected to the instrument cluster.

I also looked throughout the van, and I somehow found broken plastic pieces which seemed to fit there, so i believe that these plastic pieces belonged to that "cover"

Yeah, I can see the clips are broken off of it in the pics. They're still stuck down in the dash. Post pics of the pieces if you can.

Thanks everyone for all of the help, we found a solution while getting estimates on body repairs since an idiot hit us to closing this "gaping hole" up on the dash.

Jez,
What most sane folks would view as a gaping hole just may seem to most ham operators like me as a huge "opportunity" to mount control heads and other distractions in convenient locations to see them...... i.e., "But honey, I *have* to fill the hole with something -- and this way I don't have to drill any holes in your dashboard!"
Ahhhhh....... one can dream.
Lemons vs. lemonade, I s'pose.....
