Hello! Let's see if we can work together and come to a satisfactory conclusion!

D you have a voltmeter or a test light , to see where voltage is lost? Look at the starter area, as this is where voltage for the dash comes from. The power comes off the positive battery cable side of the starter solenoid. Look around the starter ground for a fusible link, that can be blown, so the circuit is not complete.A fusible link will look like a fuse soldered into a wire,usually ground wire. Jump around it for test.
