2003 SVTF won't crank dashes on cluster

Hey guys new here, but I picked up a rough SVTF that I've been slowly building but if hit a wall on this one, so I went to go start it one day and everything powered on per usual. But when I went to go crank it nothing would happen so I replaced the starter, still nothing so I thought maybe ignition switch? Bypassed that still nothing, then I realized the dashes where the mileage should be. So naturally I assumed pcm so I checked the ground to the battery and the power diode both good so I ordered a replacement pcm but still no go, still not recognizing it in the system I figured I'd ask here before I pin this whole ****er out, would really like to avoid that but any input is appreciated

Figured it out, had bad factory grounds, all of them were shot, cleaned those up and put fresh bolts in runs like a top, crazy how something so simple can be over looked and cause so much trouble
sailor and Byron King like this.
