I would check ignition switch first. Some have a slide mech that is hooked to the steering column behind the guards/steering wheel covering. Sounds like yours is worn or out of adjustment. Try slightly moving your key a little forward(toward start) and back (toward acc) not enough to engage starter or to shut it off. If power returns to your items I would look into adjusting the slide mech
