    Thanks for the advise. I have spent most the day today, retracing my steps. I have repeatedly checked all known "main" connectors. I'm wondering if some damage occurred to the ignition switch while the steering wheel was loose and resting on the driver seat.

    I also checked the main fuse box next to the battery. Speaking of...Took the battery to be tested today and found it had gone bad on me, at first I thought " this was my problem" then when I got back and installed it. Poof, nothing!! Still no juice!

    A friend, whom is a Auto tech, suggested that there is a connection box on the engine-side of the Steering wheel. He mentioned that sometimes when lowering the Steering wheel; it's loose and can slide forward and backwards. He said that maybe the wiring connection on the engine-side came loose. I'll check it tomorrow. If I can't find it, I'll have to eat crow, and have her taken in to a local shop for a Diagnose
