Default 2002 4.7L won't start

I have a 2002 4.7L that turns over but won't start. The oil, fuel, battery and temp guages do not work either but all other instruments in the cluster work. This is the second time it has done this, the first time a dealership said they fixed it. I am leaning towards the ignition switch but am unsure.

6 weeks ago. They checked all the grounds and connections, it seemed to fix the problem.

Take it back and tell them it didn't stay fixed.

I recently moved from Manitoba to British Columbia (2400km away) and had it fixed there, not here.

its not the ignition switch or it wouldnt turn over at all.try checking the coils to make sure you are getting spark. if so move to the injectors to make sure they are spraying. this could be something as simple as a clogged fuel filter.
