Any help appreciated..
Obvious thing is to back track and make sure all connections are snug and that any wires are not frayed but i assume you did that. Next check the fuse. If you look at the white card that comes on the back of the glove box it will tell you the fuse number. It sounds like a fuse problem given the high number of things all related to the instrument cluster and lights that are not working. I would check fuses for ignition, lights, instrument panel and roof. That is where I would start.
