Thanks for the replies I will see if I can pinpoint the problem. Although I don't think it's a short in the dash because the car doesn't start.
If you haven't already done so clean the battery terminals and clamps thoroughly with battery corrosion cleaner and wire brush. Rinse off with water then spray some crc electrical spray and tighten all connections. This is what I did after having starting problems and as a last resort before going to replace my starter.
My symptoms we're not starting after the car had not been used overnight on a cold day. The car wouldn't crank at all yet all lights were bright. Only after about five minutes of turning the key the car would finally start with a strong crank which led me to believe that the battery was good and so was the starter and my problem was only the connections or bad ground. It only happened after I changed my battery and not cleaning the clamps on the car. It's been 2 months and car starts flawlessly after doing the cleaning.
