Does it crank over? Does the radio or wipers come on in any key position?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
radio is wired to the battery. fog light high beeams and wipers work

If you aren't getting any feed to the dash lights or ignition I would suspect the ignition switch.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
ok well i replace that come tommorrow. but would that cause it not to shift out of park as well ?
Expert:  Ted G. replied 7 years ago.
Yes, because if the electric release solenoid is not being fed power it will keep it locked in park.
