Unhappy 2002 Dodge Ram Electrical Issues

I have a 2002 Dodge Ram 4.7 V8. A couple days ago the dash lights/gadges all quit working. As well as my power locks, turn signals and brake lights. After having a mechanic friend test the fuses and reset the battery, a red light came on the dash, but it still would start and run fine. Today I went to start it and it wouldnt turn over. At all. He came back and charged the battery but the truck was having a hard time firing up and ran horribly. He even swapped the battery out with the one is his truck, same issue. I have had multiple suggestions such as - Front Control Module, the cluster with the BCM built in and even the alternator itself.
But why would the cluster affect the way the truck runs?
Anyone with experience with this issue? I would just bring it directly to dodge but that now requires me to have it towed a far distance and to fork up money I just dont have. Could use some suggestions.

Thanks so much
