I suspected it was the ignition switch, which later turned out to be the case.
I disconnected the battery and removed the 2 Philips screws keeping the 2 plastic covers around the steering column.
Using a 13 mm. wrench and socket, I removed the bolt holding the steering column to the U-joint. (Green circles)
On the left hand side there is a golden bolt which is keeping the steering column to the dashboard. (Green circle). I cut a trace in it to make it easier to remove.
Disconnect all the electric connectors. There are 3 connectors on each side plus the brown plastic ring around the ignition lock.
You can now pull the steering column and steering wheel out: Everything will be in one piece.
There is a Philips screw holding the ignition switch in place. (Green circle)
The new switch is to the right. Part number: 6N0905865
I opened the old switch and sure enough, the contacts where burned. (Green circles)
