Wipers & headlight problem with my 2002 Boxster

Hi all-

I am new to this forum and would really appreciate your help with this.

Just today my windshield wipers and headlights stopped working on my car. Someone mentioned to me that this is likely an ignition switch problem.

Is this something I can buy from Suncoast or someone else and have it installed or do I have to go to the dealership.

I am currently unemployed and am watching every penny!

Yep - highly likely it's the ignition switch. I've done three on my car (so far).
