The ignition electrical switch (not the key ignition switch) on the bottom of the steering colomn is probably the issue........You can find it by looking under the dash while turning the key you will see a rod moving back and forth. At the bottom of the rod is the switch.
Hope this helps!

1997 Chevy Blazer. The ignition will not turn off always or allow me to remove the key for several tries up to an hour. Pretty aggravating. I have other issues & have read that they could all be part...

Maybe true, but your first priority should be to get that ignition switch looked at (three parts - key module, the cable from it to the electrical switch, and the electrical switch, and it's usually the electrical switch), then see what problems go away. If the compressor clutch won't engage (electrical problem), that could be related to your ignition switch problem.

Why would turning the steering wheel while cranking engine gets my car to start?

The ignition switch in the column most likely has a break in it. So when you move the steering wheel, it moves the wire so it completes the connection when you turn the key. Have the ignition switch replaced.

My 2003 Chevy Avalanche is having trouble shifting from 2 wheel to 4 wheel or to Auto Drive. Every time I start the truck it is in the 4 x4 mode regardless of where it was left when last turned off. I live...

Just a question. Does the truck do this after the truck is warmed up. If not this is a temp. issue and can be a few items. Generally this is an electric switch issue. Remove the fuse from the system when you shut it off for the night and see if it still jumps to 4x4 mode.

Ignition switch 1986 Ford F-150

The Ignition switch in turn powers the brake switch which has an interlock to the shifter, If it doesn't know you are on the brake, it will not shift.

Windshield wiper and turn signals don't work.

I have seen this problem several times and it was the assembly under the steering wheel at the top of the steering column. There are many electrical connections in there for turn signals, wipers, horn, headlight dimmer, etc. The electrical contacts could be dirty and not conducting current or they could be misalligned or broken or just plain worn out.

If you're up to it, take steering wheel off and take a look. If there is an airbag, and you've never removed one of those, I wouldn't even start -- take it back to the shop and tell them what you suspect the problem to be.
