The car died and the ignition wouldn't do anything. I don't have headlights or anything. I have voltage to the starter. I took the steering wheel off and down to the turn signal assy. I found 2 pieces of copper strips broken and some broken plastic and metal in cavity next to where switch key snaps in. I found a picture of the turn signal assy and it looks like mine is all intact, so I don't know where to go from here. Please help. Thanks, Glen

You may have to check your ignition switch, also check voltage to and from ignition switch. Your instrument cluster should get voltage feed from ignition switch. Anything electrical, you want to check voltage and ground for that system.
Your starter motor circuit usually has two voltage circuits, one comes straight from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the crank position and is wired through the neutral or clutch switch, depending on the tranny. The starter usually grounds through the engine block. You may have a starter relay? I haven't looked at your wiring. Any testing at the starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.
Normally this condition is the result of a poor body ground connection. Testing for this can be deceiving. At the static(nothing on) condition, testing can show a good ground. However when a circuit is excited, it has a determined resistance and a set current flow. If the ground connection to this or a branch circuit is loose, corroded, or broken wire. This will allow just enough connection to show as being good, but not good enough to complete the circuit with the required amount of connection when energized.
ignition switch contact or starter motor given up the ghost ,try a jump start and see if that works ,do the lights go dim when you try to start it??if so then its a flat battery or a old battery thats just died on you.These vehicles do have a big ignition lock in the dash and these just dont go wrong like a VW but its possible?
This sounds like an issue with your ignition switch. Basically what is happening here is that you are shutting off your vehicle, but the ignition switch is not working correctly and is allowing certain accessories to stay on.
Hi, if the car engine fails to crank, there is a fault in one of the components in the battery/ignition/starter circuit. Low battery (Check battery voltage, recharge if low, or jump start with another vehicle or battery charger). Bad starter relay/solenoid (Check for
voltage at relay, if relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key
is turned to start, replace relay). Bad ignition switch (Check to see if
voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not,
check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Replace
ignition switch if defective).
Sounds like ur computer. When a computer goes out they seem to go in different ways. Also there should be main circuit relays either under the hood or on driver side dash. If you pop a main relay it will kill all main circuits to protect a circuit melt down. Hope this helps. Thanks Josh
