It appears that the "Accessory" portion of your Ignition Switch is inoperative. What this means is there are 3 various positions on your Ignition Switch, Off, Run and Start. Your "Off" position (from what I gather) is working as it should. The "Start" position is also working in that it sends a signal to your Starter and your Engine Starts up, however this is where the problem occurs. When you release the key from the Start position, it automatically returns to the "Run" position, which ALL your "Accessories" are supposed to remain "On." This tells me the "Ignition Switch" has malfunctioned. This isn't actually where the key is inserted, most cars have a rod going from the Key area to a switch down on top of the steering column that engages various switches and contacts within the Ignition Switch. Some car manufacturers have the Ignition Switch held in with two 8 mm nuts or 5/16", that allow you to slide the Ignition Switch so that the Run, Start and Off positions are in-line.

I would obtain a Haynes Manual for your particular car and this will show you "How to replace or Test your Ignition Switch." To do this without a "Service Manual" will be almost impossible and the Haynes Manual has a section in the back of the Wiring Diagrams of your vehicle. To further diagnose your problem, take a test light or volt meter and when the car is running, ALL the fuses should be "hot", or register voltage or light up the test light...except for the parking light fuse unless you have the lights on while performing this test. If you have No Voltage to your Radio, Fan Switch or anything else, then it's the Ignition Switch caught in-between the Start and Run position insofar as not allowing the 12 volts to power the Accessories in your car.

I hope this helps in resolving your problem. Please feel free to update me at anytime.

    Since you probably had to order the switch at the Dealership, I would ask the Parts Department as to whether this is becoming a common problem for your car. I would also ask the Service Department or Service Manager about this as well. (Not a Service Adviser for they're not properly trained enough to answer car problems.) Should you speak with the Service Department, ask whether they have any "TSB's" on the Ignition Switch problem. A "TSB" is a "Technical Service Bulletin", that's given to the Technicians so they'll know a type of problem occurring on all vehicles such as yours, but since it's not a Safety issue, the general public is never informed of TSB's. TSB's are still covered under the Manufacturer's Warranty and is available to Owners at no charge, for the Manufacturer, pays the Dealership and Technician under a "Warranty" ticket rather than a self-pay ticket.

    I hope this helps as well insofar as now knowing that "Safety Recalls" have to be told to the public whereas "TSB's", do not.
