1990 Thunderbird Speedometer/Radio problem

I have a 90 Thunderbird which I am trying to bring back after 2 years of sitting in the garage. The speedometer is out and the radio doesn't work but everything else does. I replaced the battery and spark plugs but it did not fix the problem. I am guessing it may be the ignition switch or possibly the battery cables. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Have you checked fuses? Most vehicles have a fuse block inside the car and under the hood. Some radios also have a fuse in the radio.

I checked the fuses and they all seem fine. I'm might replace them anyway though.

That didn't fix the problem. Any other suggestions?

Is it digital dash? I was working on a Cougar w/ the same problem but it had all digital dash. I found a fuse in the box under the hood that was blown. Replaced it and all was well.

It is digital. I will take a look at that fuse box. Thanks.
