I'm getting ready to get married and sell my 1993 Loyale. It had an issue with the ignition, especially when it was cold, where accessories would turn on, but it wouldn't start. A buzzing sound would cut out. I found a bundle of wires under the steering column that if I kind of moved around it would start. I figured it was a short in one of those wires. The accessories would always work though, even if it wouldn't start easily. Again, this usually happened when it was cold.
Today, I leave it for 5 minutes after driving several miles. Coming out, I put the key in, turned it, and NOTHING. No accessories, nothing. I moved the wire around, nothing. The only things that do work are the hazard lights and the buzzing sound when the door is open and the key is in the ignition. I found that is controlled by a small bundle of 2 wires. The larger bundle that I used to bend to get it to start goes to the ignition switch, and I opened it up and everything seems fine.
I wonder if it's a bad ignition switch. Could anyone shed some light on what this could possibly be? I'm getting married in a few weeks, graduate a week later, and then commission in the Air Force and move to Mississippi a few days later. So I really don't want the stress from this :/
The whole electrical system has been a bit wonky in this car since I've been driving it the last 3 years. The clock is dim and SOMETIMES comes on, and lately my car has been running really bad. This could be caused by an ignition switch that was cruddy I think.
