Default No dash lights or starting

Got a buddy that has a 96 and said that his truck just died after hitting a small pothole... Went over and see if I could help.. The motor cranks, the fuse links and fuses are good, cleaned all the grounds, has power to distributor and power from the key switch. No fire, just cranks. I did notice that none of the dash lights (check engine, battery etc) lit when the key is 1st turned on. I'm sure this has something to do with his problem because he said that they did work before it stalled. Any common trouble spots to look at that would cause these lights to not light up when turning the key?

It sounds like he missed something when checking the fusible links or fuses.

The fused links have power on both sides of their plugs and i checked all the fuses with a meter.
Did find it strange that battery side of one of the links had 3 wires, 2 of them has battery voltage.... the plug that went to it only had 2 wires....the empty spot on that plug had one of the wires that has voltage on the corresponding plug...if that makes any sense
