I had a funny story, 1998 to 2001 has known issues for the instrument panel just shutting off down the road. I had that issue and I removed the cluster to fix it myself. In the mean time I drove the car and then it was not turning on (drained battery). I jump started and then checked the alternator with a voltmeter, it was not generating. Then I put the cluster back and was generating, double check that the connections from the wiring to the instrument cluster are properly seated otherwise will not charge the battery. Also, if is not generating and the charge light is off that is must likely the issue.
