Question about 1998 Ford Contour
I can turn lights on but no dash lights or turn signals
Check the fuses. The proper way to test fuses is as follows:
With the ignition 'ON' check both sides of each fuse with a test light connected to 'ground' which is the battery negative terminal, or any clean unpainted metal part on the vehicle's chassis which you can clip on to will suffice. The test light should light on both sides of the fuse. If it lights on only one side, replace that fuse.
If after this check you find that all fuses are good, and the problem still exists, you need to test for 'power' and 'ground' on the dash light and turn signal circuits, in order to find where the problem or 'interruption' in the circuit is. If you feel up to it, wiring diagrams can be obtained at your public library.
