Check the battery terminals and condition. Either the battery is weak or the cables are not secured well.

If the dash lights goes out when thr ignition is being cranked, it is a fault with power supply and if the battery condition is good, terminals are secure, check the ground circuits, especially the ground cable from battery to transmission.

Did you test the battery in the first place?

Have you tried a jump start?

Try bypassing the ignition switch and see if the starter cranks.
