i meant to say yesterday morning but in any event im getting nervous


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.
