IGNITION SWITCH?

Buick Regal

I have a 1987 Buick regal. I was driving to a friends the other day and I was about 2 blocks out when everything ran off the switch just shut off. Elec fan, guages, stereo, all the acc. On the switch. My coil is hardwired so the engine kept running. I turned car off and tried the key again and nothing came on not even starter. Next day I went and got some wire and a button and rigged it to my starter so I could at least drive my car. Does this sound like an ignition switch to you? The key still turns and unlocks wheel.

Of course check all the fuses. See if there is a fusible link near the starter that might have burned
