Do you have a voltmeter to test with? Battery and cable connections are the fist thing to check. Next would be the fuses. The power for the dash comes from the same terminal on the solenoid as the posiitve battery cables attaches to. Then goes through the fuses, to the keyswitch. Power is lost there.

?? Battery voltage above 12.5 volts? Same voltage at key and starter solenoid?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Do I need to turn the key to have voltage at solenoid also should I only have it on one spot on switch
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago
Solenoid has voltage from the battery all the time, on the large post. The small post only gets voltage when key is turned to start. The keyswitch should have voltage at the battery post, before it is turned on.

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago
If you jump the starter solenoids positive battery post, to the small switch pot does the engine spin? It should ,if the battery , cables , solenoid and starter are good. ???

Yes it spun
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
What's that mean it's not getting power to the starter ,where would that come from
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago
Comes off the keyswitch, to the switch wire on solenoid.
