Steering problem
1996 Ford Station Wagon 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 170000 miles

Hi, Our 1996 Ford Taurus Wagon GL seems to have a weird problem. The radio goes off and on, the "idiot" light for seat belt warning goes off and on, the power steering went out several times while driving! When you move the ignition switch (where I put the keys in) the problems stop sometimes. Any ideas? It's at the repair shop and I'm very worried.
Thanks.

It does sound like an ignition switch issue. If the problem changes as you move the switch, chances are it is the problem.
