If the powered terminal is with ignition OFF, you need to check power supply from the ignition switch, (broken wire, blown fuse, faulty ignition switch)
Use test lamp and apply battery current to the terminal that is supposed to have power and see if the dash indicator lights works, if yes the ignition switch or power suppply to it is missing.
If power is available only when ignition is turned on or cranked, you need to check for blown fuse under hood, broken wire and bad connectors from underhood to socket. The main supply power line is faulty.
