Default Totally dead gauge pod

It's my fault for sure, but some experienced ideas would be helpful. I just changed the sun damaged dashboard on my 986. I started the car and the entire gauge pod is dead. No indicator lights, no turn signals, no gauges movement, etc.

I gave up for the evening and to collect my thoughts about what could have been forgotten during reassembly. There are approx 30 conductors within 3 major connectors attached to the back of the gauge way are there 30 bad connections! Nor are there 3 bad plastic connector installations. It has to be something like a fuse or ground.

The batt was disconnected during the entire project so how could I burn out a fuse? But I'll check it tomorrow.

Right now I'm at a loss and it looks like I have to remove the pod and investigate, but I really don't know where to begin.

Thanks for the intrest. I took the gauge pod off and found one of the 3 large harness connectors not properly seated.

It's FIXED....Time for a well deserved beer.
