91 Chevy S10 Pickup Electrical problem

I have a 91 Chevy S10, it sometimes will not start. I get nothing when I turn the key. Today after using the cigarette lighter outlet to charge my cell phone. It started a new trick. The radio resets when I open the door or turn on the inside light. Then it would not start I waited several minutes and it started but the radio keeps resetting when the door is open. Any ideas.

It sounds like you have more than 1 problem. The radio resetting when the door is opened sounds like a short in the door wiring harness. As far as the other problem this could be several things. The first thing that comes to mind is the ignition switch overheating.
Hope this helps ya,
Billy

ingnition switch overheating? I am guessing the fix is a new ignition switch. Are you talking the column switch where the key is used.
