If the problem is not in the dash, my first guess is in the ignition switch or the auxillaries relay (24) in the fuse block.
Is your ignition switch lose? put the key and try to wiggle...
if the ignition switch and wiring provided are good the dash may need to be remove to check resistance at the circuit board.
