NO POWER AT THE IGNITION AND DASH

1983 Eagle Other • 198 miles

My car will not start, I replaced the battery, solenoid, I have no power at the ignition switch and key, or dash, my head lights work. Dome lights and taillights, if you short the solenoid with a screwdriver between the positive side and the negative, the starter will engage but will not run after you release the connection. Is there a main fuse that controls the ignition and dash lights?The car started with a new solenoid but after a couple of miles I lost all power to the ignition and dash again.I am stumped as to what to do, and am stuck in las vegas

Check relays under the hood. Check ignition switch itself. Check starter relay.
