I have 2006 Hyundai...

I have 2006 Hyundai sonata. Had no problems untile I removed Ignition switch, cleaned and reinstalled it. After reinstalling it the instrument lighting would not work and the drivers air bag and ESC warning lights stay "ON"

Mechanic's Assistant: Is anything interfering with the seatbelt latch?

I have separate warning lite for seat belts and it does not illuminate.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sonata yourself? What have you tried so far?

Im doing it myself. I have checked cluster fuse, removed panels and rechecked all electrical connecters, all exterior lights work but the green indicator lite for low beam on instrument panel does not lite but low beam is "ON"

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Tail, brake, turn lights work OK, interior lights OK. Illumination lights on the Air Control panel only come "ON" when light control switch is in off or auto.

It had been getting harder after each start.

Is the electrical switch replaceable
Without changing the lock?
