Put a new Ignition switch in Sams Kombi a week or so ago then the other day it started playing up again and demonstrating exactly every symptom in @oldman 's initial post in this thread. Parker's only, no head lights, high beams not staying on, no wipers unless high beam switch was held forward etc. Last night I put my spare in and all good. The ignition switch we put on initially was a cheap one from ebay The one I put on mine and the spare I replaced Sam's with was this one, a german, one from JK. Just a thought that the cheaper ones may be faulty.
