    I'd be checking fuses, and then looking for a short. Then I'd be disassembling the speedo cluster to check that wiring. Has the tank been off recently? Perhaps you have pinched wires underneath? A test light and or an Ohm meter are you're friend!

    A little more info will help. IS the battery fully charged? Does the headlights work with the ignition on? Does the started crank the engine when you try to start it? Do the lights go dim or out completly when you try to start it?
