Strange things going on. Blower motor, radio, wipers, backup lights quit working. replaced 30 amp fuse in panel. Now all of them work when key in accessory position but not with engine running (key in run position). Any ideas. Thanks in advance.

It sure sounds like the ignition switch. I can't think of anything else (other than a wire or connector associated with the ignition switch) it could be. I'm betting whatever blew the fuse took out the circuit in the switch.

The good news is, they're not too expensive, or too hard to change.
