Problem with Ignition cylinder or Ignition switch?

I have a 2000 Cadillac Escalade. Occasionally the radio, wipers, and windows stop working. When I shut the car off and wiggle the key while starting it again they might start working.

Short answer = yes. There may be a problem with the ignition switch or ignition cylinder. As a first step, check the ignition switch wiring connection - be sure the wires are secure and not loose or corroded.

Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com, wwwpartsgeek.com, and www.rockauto.com - to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the ignition / starter switch from around $20.00 for your vehicle. This is: AC Delco part # D1487D
