The first then is the battery is it fully charged or is it low, also whenkey is in crank postion you will loose dash lights, have the starter tested for power when in crank, if theres no power then i would take a look at ignition switch, not the key part but the electrical part of it, thats screwed into back of cylinder,

Check your ground wires and connections for the grounds. Also check the condition of the battery, by what you have stated you have a voltage or ground problem. Check and repair these items as needed and you should solve your problem.

Have the starter tested! Check the cables to see if they are in good condition. Check the cable that goes to the starter. They all need tight connections.Don`t know the year,make and model. but older cars have a solenoid switch that is not on the starter.

Power to headlights fan and wipers intermitantly cuts out


sounds like it is a lower ignition switch problem. The upper ignition switch is where you insert the key, The lower is an electrical switch that causes this issue. This car probably has air bags, if so, not recommended for an unlicenced technician.
