another thing on the old new yorker

ran some errands today and the last one went to go and it won't turn over.

When turning the key the dash and accessories kind dim down like usual but will not turn over.

Key switch seems a bit loose between run and start.

What should I look for to test the ignition switch or starter relay/solenoid and where is the starter relay on these things? or is there something else to look for?

Old girl has been pretty trouble free since i've had it (4.5 years and 63,000 miles) but lately its been going down hill fast.

Thanks.

I got the steering column covers off but which sets of screws do I start with to take it apart?

I see several odd screws that look like Torx with a pin in the centers.

got it.
got the security torx on the way home. Took column apart. got the key unit out and a chunk fell out of the switch housing.

Will have the wife pick one up tomorrow.

with the unit dangling buy the wires 1/2 upside down it did start. must have wedged the chunk in the right spot.

Thanks for the help.
