Toggle switch problems. Help.

I installed two toggle switches to bypass the ignition because it was broke without a key when I bought it recently ('98 ZJ 4.0), originally it had the bare wires you had to cross to start it, Red with White for power crossed with Blue with Gray and Red with Black for accessory power. Touch the yellow to crank. I used one switch for accessories, with the Blue wire and the Red and black wire on one end, on the other end of the switch is the red and white wire for power. I ran another lead from the power to one end of the 2nd switch and put the yellow on the other end to crank it. I goofed somewhere and now my overhead and blinkers arent working and the airbag light is on. This is how I done it on my other ZJ, but last time I used only one switch for the starter and my key for accessories. Help guys. TIA!

Why not just get another switch? The time you spent fiddling with it and cost of toggles ect., you are well on your way to a new switch. Did someone try to break into it?

I bought it like that. I was originally gonna use it for the engine. It came with no key what so ever, so it seems like it been stolen before. But I do have the title and it is legal. That's beside the point. If I can make it work, that's how I'd rather do it. Can't afford a locksmith to make me a key for the doors, money is tight...
