My car was running hot, so i put coolant in it. It was all gone within 2 minutes of driving?
I am hoping you have not damaged your engine, but from your short discourse, it seems not.
The most likely problem would be a broken radiator hose.
Put your car up in the air and look underneath, you should find the hole in a hose.
The leaking hose could either be a radiator hose, or a heater hose.
.If they have never been changed, now is a good time to do so, especially if the ones on your car are original.
If the hose is not readily apparent, you could add water and start the motor, but be prepared to shut it off immediately when the source of the leak is found.
God bless your efforts.

Instrument lights not working
I did see where there is a fuse under the hood for the dash lights.
Other than that the dash light rheostat could be bad. In my old model cars the light switch on the dash, you would turn it clockwise to increase illumination of dash lights. The cars I have had since has button which you can push in to lock/unlock and turn clockwise to illuminate the lights. This is my best guess at this time. If someone has done any work under the dash need to make sure nothing is loose or not plugged in.

Why doesn't battery stay charged?
Some vehicles have a regulator normally mounted on the firewall that tide into the starting circuit. The only other thing if something is staying on while you have the vehicle off. I would check and see about the regular. If your vehicle is reading 14 volts while running your alternator is good. Also check voltage at the battery cable not the post. Sometimes corrosion builds up in the cable under the insulation and this will cause the battery not to charge and eventually kill the alternator. Remember you can read voltage at the battery post but still not be getting voltage through the cable if corrosion is built up in the insulation. I hope this helps.
