The dash needs battery power to work, sounds like your battery was weak and now there is no charge at all. If you can't jump start it , the battery is completely dead, maybe even a shorted cell. Probe the battery without multimeter, what voltage do you have, or take it to your local auto parts store and they will check it for free.

Thank you and I've done that all and it. But I don't think the fuel pumps kicking in like something is wrong like I cranked it over once and it didn't sound like the fuel pump is kicking in so like something wrong through that whole process

Might be a faulty ignition switch.
