New owner here- '03 targa

When I got the car the ignition switch was FUBAR and made all kinds of fun anomalies. With the new switch the car starts and runs fine. My headlights and dash instrument lights did not work until I changed the ignition switch (unless I continually fiddled w/ it). After the change I found a dead low beam bulb (non-litronic). Since installing the new headlight low beam bulb the dash lights have worked. Is there a connection between a dead bulb and no dash lights? Seems far-fetched to me. Is my light switch going?

Thanks for any insight- I'm a VERY newbie in the Porsche world.

Ok, it has been four days since the new ignition went in and the dash lights have worked fine (and the headlights). Not much driving as snow descended and it has gotten down to 8 degrees at night. I was worried that there was/is a bad solder joint somewhere in a control module that would worsen in the cold. So far , so good.
