The ignition switch in my van failed from too much amps, and the one in there right now will need replacing eventually. They used the same switch all the way back into the 70s for a ton of GM and AMC vehicles. Vehicles back then didn't have that much. The van has electronic controlled trans, huge wipers with a large linkage setup, rear wiper, two HVAC units with 2 blowers, plus the radio all through the ignition switch. Thankfully a new one is only about $12 at the parts store.
