You mean the dash indicator lights are not showing?

At bottom of this post there is a link "First Things To Check". You would be able to get some idea what to look for.

I replaced main fuse to still get nothing then figures it was starter coil and no money ment bypass. I did hook a button up to it and it works. But now the flashers and seatbelt dont work, are they a different fuse under hood? Been looking but just cant seem to find the answer yet.

The flasher fuse is # 1 in uder dash fuse box.

Automatic seat belt fuse is # 23 in underdash fuse box.

Fuse #25 (40A) in underdash fusebox is for the ignition switch.

You meant if direct voltage to the starter solenoid works? If yes, then it could be the clutch switch or starter that is faulty.
