If there is no power to the ignition, then check all main fuses and battery terminals, leads and earth straps.
This is a hard wiring issue if there is no power to the ignition barrel.

Ignition switch on dodge dynasty?


I had a similar problem years ago. As long as your dash lights come on, it's likely you can use an external pushbutton switch to run the starter. There are likely just 4 wires on the ignition switch. Power from the battery, and switched to:
accessories
main car stuff (dash lights, ignition, signals, etc)
starter.
splice in wires from battery and starter to new switch, and you're good to go. This worked for years on my old car.

Why doesn't my Toyota Camry have any power to the inside of the car.


it only takes 2 thing to fix this, a voltmeter and a schematic
does car run.?
headlights work, MUST BE, you said INISide ONLY (IMPLIED)
FOR SURE ITS fuse blow. my wild guess is you dont know how
many fuse boxes the car has nor their location
the operators guide covers this. lost that?
so does the TOY FSM book, factory service manual.
the main fuse box has split loads. and power feed that can be 3 paths , hot all time (head lights) ignition 1 and ignition 2 feeds.

the inside of the car has many lights, even warning lights
dome,, dash dimmer lights gauges and their lamps.
and more. so if all are dead, that means.......
no power to the ignition switch or
no power out of the switch,
if no power in , to swtich that usually means fuse blown under hood
all power comes from there, and the PDC box there.
check all fuses with a voltmeter.
and bingo. oops this fuse has 12v in but 0volts out.

I have no power at all when the key is in , no light in the dash nothing


Do you have headlights with the headlight switch on? That would eliminate a battery connection problem. If things like headlights and brake lights work, one should next check that power is getting to the ignition switch. If you pull the connector under the dash off for the ignition switch, there should be a hot-at-all-times wire going to the ignition switch. Check with a test light or voltmeter. If no power to the switch, back to the fuse box by the battery-an ignition fuse may have blown. If power is available to the switch, suspect a bad ignition switch.

Locate fuse


That sounds like your ignition switch is bad. It should not only shut the engine off when ignition is turned to off, but when on, the ignition switch should also power up the circuits for the windows, wipers, and dash lights. Replace the ignition switch and it should all work right again.

What is the cable connected to the ignition that controls the dash board's gadgets


You mean by gadgets, warning lights and gauges? That would be from the ignition switch's run wire, the wire from the on position. This wire sends voltage to the ignition system, and to the dash for the warning lights and gauges-but not directly to the dash-the signal would reach the dash after being routed through the fuse panel to a fuse for the dash gauges and warning lamps. You need to check if that fuse is good.
Recall seeing any wiring diagram? The fuses are labeled either "hot at all times" or "hot in run or start". The fuses labeled hot in run or start are only sent power when the key is on, so power for those fuses are routed through, or turned on by the key being on. Depending on the car and its wiring set up, many will have relays that are turned on by the run wire, and power is then sent from the relay to that circuit's fuse in the fuse panel. This relay may be called the ignition relay. Or your car may have a different relay to send power from the run wire to the fuse panel.
The only way to figure yours out is to see a wiring diagram for it. Then you will see how power is sent from the ignition switch to the dash.
Wiring diagrams are almost always found in repair manuals. Check if your library has a manual for your car. Most libraries have quite a few repair manuals. Or parts stores sell repair manuals too, for about $25. Try to find a Haynes repair manual for your car. The other popular repair manual is from Chilton. My preference is Haynes, just my preference. I been burned by Chilton manuals sooo many times-incomplete wiring diagrams, incorrect information, incomplete information. Haynes are not perfect by any means, you want perfection-spend big bucks for a factory service manual ! In general, Haynes is more complete than Chilton.
OK, enough venting. If you have a test light, check for power at the fuse for the dash (may be labeled "gauges" or "instr pnl", something like that) with the key on. If it has power with key on, wire from the fuse goes to the dash. If that fuse has no power to it with key on, power has been lost between the ignition switch and that fuse-now you definitely need a wiring diagram to find the problem.
