I have a 1999 Daewoo Lanos Auto For some reason my ABS, brake and engine warning lights have come on permanently When this happened the wipers, windows and heater all stopped working, I had to call out the AA to get me home and when he checked he said i had a lose connection on the ignition switch. Did he mean the ingition coil?

    Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! If he said your ignition switch, he's talking about where you put your key in to start the vehicle. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Mar 1 '19 at 14:00

Some electrical system in your car can be turned on without the key, but others won't operate until the key is turned on. The AAA person reasoned since the non-functioning systems all require the key to be in the ON position then the Ignition Switch,which is activated by the key, is at fault. A person with a 5-dollar Circuit Tester will start poking around the fuse block(s) and to see which systems have no power.
