First off using a DVM test your batteries. Then while the DVM is out I would test all the fuses in the power distribution center under the hood. Then move to the cab and test the fuses in the cab. For the small blade style test light is much quicker testing but this will not work for the bigger block style fuses.

If the battery was dead the dash would die, basically, when you try to start it. 

Try disconnecting the batteries for a bit and the retrying. Some 06's have a issue with the TIPM programming and the standard amp draw of the starter. In a nut shell it senses "too" much amperage for the starter, even if it's normal, and if it does that so many starts in a row it will disable the starter output. Disconnecting the batteries can fix it, temporarily.
