I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

sounds like there's a short with the ignition switch as the dash should all be quiet until the ignition is turned on

So I'd start by inpsecting all the wireing up to the ignition switch - checking for damage and corroded joints
