Unknown electrical problem

Got in my 2000 jeep wrangler after work. It's started fine but but I had no radio headlights, turn signal or anything what could be the cause of this.… so I just shut it off and started It back up and everything worked fine so again what could cause this to happen? Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Kinda sounds like your ignition switch is heading south.

When you have a choice, buy American.

I had the same problem a few months ago, and yes it is about the ignition switch, all those key chains dangling on your key while driving can seriously do some damage to your ignition switch. I still have the problem but very rarely. When this happens to me and the car is already running, I slightly wiggle the key (not enough to cause it go out) but just enough and WA-LAH radio works and turn signals work as well. Try it out, I'm really curious to see if it works for you
