My Monte Carlo has a possible short in the ignition. When I start car, the home link, cruise control, and the switch for heat and air wont come on until I tap on the ignition switch. Sometimes I cant get those things to work at all by tapping on it. This is very frustrating and was wondering if this was a problem with others. This problem happens everytime I shut off the car. No approximate incident date. Its everyday.

On 6/21 car failed to start. There were no lights in the interior of the car except for the red blinking security light on the radio. After numerous tries the car started. Dealer subsequently replaced the body computer module. On 7/3, while driving in a business area, approximately 35 miles per hour, battery, airbag and seatbelt lights went on, speedometer froze at 35 miles per hour, and air conditioner compressor cut out. After 10 seconds the red lights went out and the speedometer worked again. After 1 minute the same thing happened for about 10 seconds, and then the lights went out and after about 30 seconds all events above happened again and after about 10 seconds the red lights went out and were replaced by the orange security light which stayed lit - and was still on when we left it with the dealer (some 20 minutes later). Dealer is now analyzing problem.
