Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

So I understand, If you turn the ignition you get no dash lights to come on? Does the dome light come on when you open the door? Does the head lights work?

Let me know?

Nothing comes on

Head lights don't even come on?

No
Expert:  Jay replied 9 months ago.

try this.

Turn the head lights on, and loosen the negative battery cable and turn it side to side. If the lights come on, then tighten it down in a slightly different position. If nothing with the negative, then try the positive.

give that a try and let me know what happens.
