Default 2003 malibu NO gas/temp gauge, or radio and heat or a/c

I recently had the computer changed in my car, wouldnt start because of anti theft system. Recently the fuel gauge temp gauge as well as radio and heat/ac do not work. i checked all fuses and they where all good, for a time being i would jiggle the ignition switch and they would brefly turn on but next time i would start the car nothing worked again, and now nothing works even when i jiggle the key, also tried beating the living hell out of dashboard but all i got was a sore hand, anyone have any suggestions!!!

Welcome to the forum. I think you're on the right track, suspecting the ignition switch. The ignition switch in that generation Malibu had a lot of current flowing through it and would eventually develop bad/intermittent contacts. If you were to take it out, you might even see blackened terminals on the back.
