Here's another indication of how rare ignition switch failure is. The parts store called me back a few days after having taken my money, and said "The vendor discontinued the part, and they're out of stock. Sorry." I got my money back, but I didn't get the part.

I was ready to re-route some wires under the steering column so I could get around after dark. But first, I reduced the weight of my keyring from 83g to 13g and tried again. To my surprise, it works fine right now. Maybe I won't have to fix it.
