Saab 900S ‘97 wont start

I have a 97 Saab 900S 2.3L
It drove normally until one day it didn’t.
Now, when I twist the key to “on” lights, radio, windows- all work as normal. Except the dash is dark except a dimly lit SRS and ABS blinking light. There is no sound from the fuel pump, and no meters moving. When I turn to crank, the starter goes as normal, but there is no ignition.

I have tried:
-Jumping/replacing battery
-Replacing computer
-Replacing instrument cluster
-Testing ALL fuses/relays
-Computer reader (doesn’t detect any)
-All fluids are good
-Fuel pump was replaced this year

I’m really racking my brain on this one. Any ideas?

First things first...Let's establish if the thing has spark.
If it is cranking over normally, disconnect any of the vacuum hoses going to the intake manifold and pour a bit of starting fluid into it.
Do a crank and see if the engine even attempts to fire.
If it does, then the ignition is okay and it is fuel related.
The fact that it drove one day and just died is telling.
The fact that you have only an ABS and SRS light could indicate a partial failure of the ignition switch internal contacts.
