Hey KHLow2008, thanks for your response!
1. I'm not 100% sure every light on the dash panel came on but I do know that serveral of them did, if not all - that's very likely/possible.
2. This has happened to me 3 or 4 times and the last time it occured it was almost impossible to restart. Problem is, I thought I had corrected the problem as one day going to work this happened and I found a loose battery connection, but since I'm here you know that didn't correct it :(
3. The radio was working, or at least I wasn't required to input the anti-theft code; I don't recall having any problem with the ac either.
KHLow2008, I surmise your diagnosis is correct as I've done some more research after posting here and found a 02 recall for an ignition switch. I probably should've done more research before posting here but don't regret it and am somewhat proud I've found this site as I'm a "doitmyself" type of guy, wouldn't go as far to say garage mechanic. Having said this I'm not saying I've nailed this down and I am still very interested in hearing what else you've got to say.
