I would be checking all the fuse at the panel. Turn the key off and check the ones that are supposed to on(like the door locks). Also they should have B+ power(12 volts or so). When panels go bad Voltage can be anywhere from 0 to 7 or 8 volts. Then turn the key on and check. All the fuses should have power, except the exterior lights. On bad panels you'll see low voltage on some fuses. and with key off, you'll see voltage on fuses that supposed to be off.
Remind me not to ask for a ride from you. When you jiggle the key you are probably connecting, or re-connecting, the power from the ignition switch to that portion of the fuse panel that covers all those things that don't work. Except for the power door locks- that may be a separate issue. But everything else only has power when the key is in on (run) or start. And the fuses to them only have power from the ignition switch when the position is in on or run. You have a bad, worn lock cylinder, or a bad electrical portion of the ignition switch. You'd have to pull the cover shrouds off the steering column to see and get to the parts.
