Ignition switch problems
Twice now my ignition switch has jammed up so that the key wouldn't turn far enough to engage the starter. I moved the gear shift, the steering wheel, anything I could think of. Finally used a pair of pliers to turn the key, which worked okay except that after the second time the starter engages at the very limit of what I can turn the key...
Basically one more time and I'm screwed!
Okay...should I take the steering column apart (that sounds like fun) or wire in a switch for the starter so that I just turn the key on and then hit a button to crank it?
