Q: Ignition tumbler and switch not working correctly

asked by on

So I've just got done replacing the ignition cylinder because the car would lose power to things such as turn signals, radio and heating, then the car would no longer start at all. So I replaced the cylinder and now after twisting the key past what should start it, it comes on. But the electrical stuff still won't power up, could it be the ignition switch that's wrong with it?
My car has an automatic transmission.
