Does it have tilt steering? Mine has a wiring problem in the steering column. If I have it tilted all the way up, everything works fine. If I tilt it down, weird things happen, like lights come on, won't start, wipers don't work, etc.

Have you checked fuses? Check for power at the harness connector on the column and report back.

Way to go. Glad it was something relatively simple.
