some kinda electrical prob????????

i have a 92 ranger that up untill yesterday drove fine. i went to the store came home and left it for the night. the next morn i tried to start and nothing. it has plenty of battery life. but it wont even turn over. so i checked the starter and was able to start via crossing terminals. so then i figured it was the the clutch pedal safety switch so i bypassed. dont worry was gonna replace if it was the issue. but nada. now ive noticed the horn no longer works and my amp no longer will come on but i have plenty of juice. can an ignition switch cause all of these problems or do i have an electrical gremlin. any advice would be greatly appreciated thanks yall.

I had a ’95, 2.3L, once in a while it too would decide not to start for me…
Used to get out and shake some of the connections and then it would start.
Thinking here that we are talking about bad connections.
check out your connections clean them up and add some electrical-paste, make sure to check grounds too and the solenoid gourd especially.
