I'm going to answer my own question I found out it's the ignition switch not the physical switch that the key starts the car not that switch but it's an electrical harness that's on the steering column that supplies main power to all those options in the vehicle it was separated & falling apart and for $18 I replaced it that's the fix for this car!
