Everything I told you up to now was just to verify the starter circuit would work. My concern is the dash not lighting up. That is not related to the starter circuit. The only thing they MIGHT have in common is a pair of contacts in the ignition switch or the wire that feeds that part of the switch.
If there is a fuse for just that circuit, the fastest way to test them is with a test light. Connect the clip lead to the battery negative cable, then touch the probe to the two small holes on the top of the fuses. When you find a fuse where the test light lights up, it must light up from both holes. If it only lights up when touching one of the holes, either it's blown or the probe isn't making good contact. You can use a voltmeter this way too.
If you find some fuses where the test light doesn't light up on either hole, those are in the circuit after the switch which means you must turn on the appropriate switch, then test that fuse. There should be a sticker on the fuse box cover that lists the fuse circuits and the relay functions.
