    I have a 98 Concord. Every once in while the heat will noot come on when I
    start the car. it will be on when I first turn the key, but when I try to
    turn it over it will shut off. I also notice that when the ABS light stays
    on the heat will not turn on. As well as the windows not working and the
    air bag light will be on. If I were to move the ignition around or
    slightly move the column it would turn on and the windows would work and
    the air bag and ABS lights would turn off. Yesterday, everything was
    working and I lowered the rear window. When I did this, the liaght came
    back on and the hear and windows would not work. I noticed that all four
    are located in the same area in the fuse box. all fuses are OK, so I am
    thinking that they are linked via some sensor. If they are is it easy to
    replace. Regards, Ramon

    If you have a bundle of keys on a key ring it may be preventing the
    ingnition switch from returning back to the run postion and causing all
    ign fed accessories to be turned off. But if you say you moved the key and
    everything started working I would suspect a problem with the ignition
    switch or as stated above.

    Thanks Glenn,

    First, I gave wrong information. It is a 96 concord which we just got
    about 6 months ago. I thought it was a 98.

    Secondly, do you know a rough cost on new ign, and is it easy enough to

    The switch is easy to replace, I have no idea on the cost of the part. I
    also never said that the switch was at fault.

    Hmmm - you did say this: "But if you say you moved the key and
    everything started working I would suspect a problem with the ignition
    switch or as stated above." - which I realize is not an absolute
    statement. I would say that if he can fairly consistently affect the
    problem one way or the other by moving the key, then that would give
    stronger creedence to your orignal statement.

    Anyway, Ramon - the switch would be anywhere from $38 to $50 (part only)
    depending on the particular dealer's markup.

    I said "Ignition switch or as stated above" I have seen this problem on
    many vehicles due to excees weight from having to many keys on the key
    ring. The OP never confirmed how many keys he has therefore I now say "I
    never said the switch was at fault" If the op confermed that he has only
    one key on ring I would say that the switch is bad.
