Default Its a full moon tonight and my vette wont start! Ignition switch maybe?

I've decided to name the car Beatrice since the B*t$h has decided to breakdown on me yet again. I has dropped her off at Sears to get the rear passenger tire replaced because theres a slow leak in the tire ( side wall is cracked and near a blow out). After i showed up at the appointed time to pick the car up the worker tell me the car wont start. I assume its my ever troublesome battery cables and start to perform my little tricck to get her going, only it never worked
Well, all the lights work fine and a quick battery check ruled that out. Looks like the its something to do with the ignition!?
Do C3 vettes have a history of ignition switch problems? Luckely the Sears guys are gonna let me keep her in ther garage all night so i can get her towed tomorrow. But, sometimes vette ownership just proves to be way tooo much. I tell you i was so pissed i was ready to sell the car for a quarter
I could sell her for what ever someone would give me and just try to buy a more restord chrome bumper car from that huge Corvette place in Dallas ( I'm from texas) when back on the mainland.
Yet, reason has replaced insanity and i now love thecar er...Beatrice again. hy not ,..a jet black C3 is simply too gorgeous and sexy to sell out of anger or frustration.
Well, so what do you guys think? All lights work yet she wont turn over. The bettery has a good charge! So, that leaves the ignition system right? Mind you this is a ZZ4 with very few miles ( about six months old)

Damn..doesn't Sears still do their free diagnostic check up thing there for current problems..(no pun intended). My wife said before she was married that whenever her car would act up..she went to sears and let them diagnose the problem..then take it to her dad and he would fix it. If it is sitting in their shop and they still do that ...let em hook it up and tell you what's wrong with it..THEN call the tow truck. Take it back home and fix it...Thanks Sears!!! :seeya
