My return says I have a credit for an eligible dependent but enters zero for that dependent why is that?

If the child that you are claiming as eligible dependent has income, the credit will be reduced by that amount. If the child’s income is high enough, then the credit will become Zero. https://turbotax.intuit.ca/tips/claiming-the-eligible-dependant-credit-5107
