Oh how I had this frustration for two days. It started when my wife went out and called me that the car would not start. I drove over with jumper cables to jump the car. When I got there I noticed everything would turn on except the radio and the a/c. I would turn the key and I could hear the relays click and blower turn on but it would not turn over. So I still tried to jump it. Well guess what it didn't work. So knowing a little about car electronics working in the car audio field when I was younger I knew the acc wasn't turning on. I told my wife it's the ignition but just incase I'll change the battery. Guess what!? It wasn't the battery. So I jump in the car and start playing with the ignition and finally noticed that the key turned loosely. No click from lock to acc to on or to start. So a friend comes over and we take the ignition switch out. A part was broken in it called the ignition switch actuator which I later found out. This part is about 40 dollars online. Dorman# 924 739 . We also rigged the ignition to where it thinks the key is turning it on by leaving the tumbler connected and the switch connected and using a screw driver to turn the switch and the key to turn the tumbler so it can read the key. Long story short I saved myself a big headache and if your car is doing this I hope I save you one too!
