Answer 1
What did you 'mess with a little'? Battery connection? -

I did not mess with the battery connection I just kept turning the key in the ignition trying to get the lights to come on so I can start it -
Answer 2
I know ziptie responded first, and if I'm stepping on toes, due to some kind of protocal, I apologize, but I figured getting the 'customer' (what is a good term for folks with problems we try to assist on here?) taken car of was the priority. Based upon your answer to ziptie, and I believe they may agree, it sounds as though your ignition switch needs replaced. If there's some kind of "follow-up" you get to fill out later, give ziptie the credit. -

No apoligies necessary! If someone else can be of more help, that is exactly why they allow more than one response.We're just here to help each other for the most part , although I do like the 'entertainment factor' from some of the questions. That said......I do agree- now that we know what was messed with it does sound a lot like it could be the ignition switch. Most can be tested , to be sure it's not a faulty connection elswhere. Good luck. My toes are fine....they just itch a little....is that dangerous? -
