    Welcome mate

    It sounds like the accessory part of the ignition switch has gone faulty. You could try more spray in there to see if it starts working

    It the bit to the other side of where the key goes in. The thin red should be live when the keys are in the accessory postion. If you want to just join that thin red to a igniton live at the barrell
