Default Where to start?

3 months ago, my Dash cluster would intermittently keep my truck turned in the ON position of the key with the the key being turned off. Changed my Ignition switch and it did solve the problem. Now a different problem has arose with the likes of my electrical on my Ranger. My RPM's are nonresponsive, whereas my Speed-0 works fine. My Oil pressure is maxxed out, and my cluster also says my Battery has no volts. My water temp guage is maxxed out too. Is my cluster broke?

Also I guess my shift needle on the column just broke also. I guess I didnt reinstall it correctly the first time I dropped it for my Ignition Switch lolol.

Probably. For those things to all happen, you have to have things in there grounded that shouldn't be and broken connections that should be connected. It is probably either physically damaged or or the previous electrical problems fired some components.
