still nothing on the dash when turn key.

Theres electrical points in your ignition,those could have been damaged during the theft. So when you turn your key you may not be fully engaging all of the points to fully start the car.

Time for a new ignition switch and lock cylinder. Should have been on your list after you got your car back.
