Yes the ignition switch is connected to a lot of things. Just for kicks though, before you replace any more parts have your battery load tested. A weak battery can make your cars computer do all kinds of weird things. The battery has to be fully charged to perform this test. So if you have driven it quite a while, or if you have put the battery on a charger, this is when it can be load tested.

My 2011 Chrysler 200 the ABS light came on while driving but it went off and then the wiggly car light came on and off on and off continue to go on and off so I shut the car down because my AC was blowing out cold then it blows out warm then it went back to toll now my car will not start what could be the problem do you think it's an air compressor or a module

My 2016 chrysler 200 had a weak battery would not start had it jump started, all signals were off and transmission was effected also had to go to dealer to have it checked out it was still under warranty they put a new battery at no charge runs fine so far . Cant believe all this for battery being weak. technology the computer was messed up also and sending wrong signals.
