I just replaced the entire ignition lock. When I turn the key to on, everything works fine. Once I start the car and it is running, the headlights, blower, wipers, clock, etc. no longer work. Did I overlook something? Any advice?

I will mention that I managed to destroy the cable clock spring in the process of removing the steering wheel, but that should only affect the airbag, horn and radio controls on the wheel, correct?

I have solved the issue. Sorry for the post. If a mod thinks this might help others, leave it. Otherwise delete at your discretion.

The issue was with the new ignition switch. When I start the car and release the key, it doesn't spring back to the "on" position. It stays stuck just slightly ahead. I simply need to turn the key about a degree or two back, and everything works fine.
