Unhappy 1988 ford thunderbird, V8 sports coupe

My 1988 ford Thunderbird seems to be having an electrical problem. The symptom is when the ignition switch is turned all the way on the gages, and the climate control unit; do not work. But when the ignition key is turned on just before the motor turns the gages and the climate control work.

I have checked the fuses and they are fine, not certain where to check next. What is the difference between these two switch positions that could cause this problem.

Thanks, Bymc

Check the linkages from the lock cylinder to the ignition switch (the electrical one).

If the linkages check out, change both switches and you should be good to go.
