A pink wire turns them off, and makes them operate normally when unplugged. I haven't checked the schematic, but is this the wire of which you speak?

What would cause the ig switch to fail?

Time and use would cause it to fail. I don't have a diagram for that year model so I can't say which wires would cause the problem. Don't quite understand what you mean by the pink wire turning them off and making them operate normally. If you disconnect the wire and they go out then they should not come back on with the wire disconnected. will it still start with the pink wire disconnected?

Once it is disconnected, they go off and the switch returns to normal operation- e.g. When the key is turned to on it starts, etc.

Can't push the switch and to the left, to the lock position, either. Feels jammed.

Is it possible to take it apart and fix the short?

New switches are fairly inexpensive and it's easy to replace the old one. Only downside is having a second key.
