How olds the battery?when you turn the key, does it click or crank at all (click as in solenoid engaging) with a hammer tap the solenoid while turning key, try arcing a screw driver across the starter terminals and see if she cranks

The lights may have been on due to the ground cable maybe not on battery tight enough or corroded to begin with therefore not grounding or even chargin for that matter but since batt replacement may have been rectified?

@ 92EBII- is the problem with the dash lights fixed?
