RE: [T3] Help...it wont start

<x-charset iso-8859-1>what are some trouble shooting tips for ignition switch itself?  Or do I
have the pleasure of pulling it out of the column and replacing it?

Also since my car hasn't been started in a while, is there a way to bypass
the ignition switch at least to just get it going?  I guess "hotwiring" it?

This most likely means that the problem is a bad connection either IN
ignition switch, or in the current track that feeds the starter. The
fact that the 
light stays on somewhat eliminates the battery itself as the culprit,
you should probably make sure it is fully charged anyway.
