I have no dash lights and no brake lights

In my experience, the dash lights and tail lights are on the same circuit. Which is NOT to say that there is a universay rule that this must be. I believe this is so, again, generally speaking, to notify the driver that there is a problem with the tail lights (as well as the dash lights). Really, when was the last time you did a walk around to check the lights except right before inspection!

No dashboard lights = no tail lights.

Anyway, I think you will find that you have a blown fuse in your fuse box. Give it a check.

Still no turn signals...

The Electronic Flasher is located behind LH side of the instrument panel, above fuse panel.
you have to get on your back in front of the drivers seat ,,,with a flash light and look under the dash ,,, on the left side of the steering column tucked under the dash is a black square relay looking thing ,,this is your turn signal flasher ,,

No gauges, most idiot lights displayed, water leaking in on drive

There'a s a rainwater collecting vessel just above the back of your dash board instruments where the wires and connectors are. The vessel might be already corroded and leaking. The leaking water short circuited your connections. Check all the fuses and look for the source of leak then fix it.
