Neutral safety switch

Anybody have any thoughts on the symptoms of a bad switch? Lights, horn,, top all work but no instrument cluster or radio and it won't crank.

Not your NSS, most likely. If that were the case, the radio and everything else would still work as normal, you just wouldn't be able to start it because the car couldn't sense if it was in safely in Park/Neutral.

When mine failed, it was about $600 at the dealer... I'd say DIY is the best way to go, since it was about a $60 part.
