I started my car and all the sudden I had no dash lights, no speedometer, fuel guage ect. So I shut it off thinking it was a computer problem and tried to start it, now I have nothing, checked ignition fuses, all good, I have good battery connection, I have radio capability in the acc position but not in the run position which makes me think I have a ignition switch problem. What do you think?

Do you have two positive(red) cable ends at the battery? If so, check in between them, there should be a lead spacer, and the bolt will seem tight, but could be bottomed out in the battery. Some bolts were too long. Delco batteries also leaked acid from the positive end, and corrosion could have made it's way throughout the cables.
