problem figured out

Hey all. I posted in here a few days ago about a weird problem I've been having with my 99 cabrio... sometimes when you start it up, the brake and ABS lights never go off, and headlights, wipers, fan, etc. don't work.

I thought it might be the high load relay (is that it's name?)..

I looked around, and found similar problems with a Jetta (i think) that someone posted about. It seems that the electrical portion of the ignition switch can be faulty on some VWs... Sure enough, if i start my car, and the weird electrical stuff happens, and I just push the key in, towards the steering column, everything starts working.

Weird, eh?
