Dash lights are tied in to the tail lights, that way you know when the tails lights quit because the dash lights go out. Find the fuse and check it. There's a fuse diagram in the owner's manual. My problem was not a fuse; it was in the elctric regulator (or something like that), which my mechanic had to replace -- about $250 for the part, another $200+ for labor.

You may have cooked a fuseable link that powers the key switch.

Battery or alternator?

My car wont start i check the starter its ok battery is good. it wont make a clicking sound nothing

with ign power on does the dash lights/gauges come on? if so than do you have power to the ign side of your starter solenoid? might be a fusible link blown that goes to the ign from the starter, get a test light and see where the power ends.

Car wont start, r & r'd starter, connections clean, battery connections good no corrosion, most of the instrument panel precheck lights etc but fuel gauge is in op

Check to make sure you're getting power to the fuel pump.

The sending unit for the in dash gauge is a part of the fuel pump assembly.

If you don't have power to the fuel pump, it won't run, consequently no fuel is pumped to the engine to allow it to start.

Do you know that all this stuff was working when it was parked? Lets assume it was. Most of this stuff works with the key on or in the acc. position. You are going to need something to check for voltage. At least a test light better yet, multimeter. The dash lights however, come off the headlight switch. Start by checking for power at the fuse for the gauges it's marked "inst" for instruments it protects all the gauges including the tach and speedo. With the key on you should have power on both sides of the fuse. The antenna won't come up until you get the radio to come on. If you have power at the fuse, Your going to have to start taking the dash apart to see where the "open" in the circuit. If you have no power at the fuse, it comes from the ignition switch, it's down low on the steering column. ( I hope you're skinny)

As for the brakes, since it's been sitting that long I would be pulling the wheels off and looking for a seized caliper.

If your going to do your on work on this car I recommend investing in a good manual, try to find a factory book on ebay. or Craig's list.

This is a way cool car, have fun with it!!!

My truck stalled lights on dash wont come on battery gauge wont work and fuel pump wont come on oil pressure gauge works when turning over have 4 or 5 fueses not getting power and no turn signals but have...

sounds like a ground or power failure you will need to check with a test light from what point to what point you are getting power to etc...then its also from your description possible to do with the electrical system itself i suggest looking for the obvious 1 st then ck for shorted fuses and relays broken worn cracked wires etc that's a starting point also sounds as if the wiper and tun signal armature have a connection to this issue !
