Ignition Gremlin

My ignition seems to be locked in an "ON" position. I assumed that it
would be a problem in the ignition switch. Since it is a holiday weekend
and no parts are available I took the switch out and cleaned up the
internal contact points thinking I could at least limp along until a new
switch could be acquired. SUPRISE!!, NO RELIEF the ignition is "stuck
on" but the starter DOES NOT TURN OVER. The instrument lights (the
center lights that monitor the various systems) are locked ON with the
key in or out, ON or OFF. The switch itself did not seem to have any
problems I polished up all the contact points and got NO CHANGE in the

I am lost have any of you experienced such a thing?
