Nigel mine does that too, has for years. I chased it around for years and just gave up on it. Maybe cougar is on to something, if you get it fixed let me know what you did to fix it.

Will do BRD, mine always has to, but not so erratic as it does now. I tried the "wiggle" test on the ignition switch, didn't make any difference.

The "wiggle" test won't show the bad contacts. 89-91, most of the power went through the ignition switch. The contacts weren't made to handle that much load. Starting in 92, they started moving the bulk of the load onto relays. The ignition switch only had to handle the load of the relay coils then. Moving other big load items like the blower motor and power windows to relays further reduces the load.
