No electrical power when restarting

(1990 Ford Crown Victoria)
in Burbank, CA on November 04, 2010
After driving, we tried to start the car and had nothing electrical working, No headlights, interior lights, starter,Ect. This has happened once before and after messing with the igniton switch (basically turning the key and wiggling it many times over) we got the crown to revive. where should i start looking? fusebox, ignition switch, other?

The ignition electrical switch in the steering column is probably faulty. These were recalled back in 1995 (recall 95S28). Check with a local dealership to see if the recall has been performed, or post your VIN here and I will check it for you.

Even if it has been performed, I suppose it could have failed again. Let us know what you find out -- or get us that VIN so we can check.
