try turning your steering wheel from left to right while you gently try removing the key. if that doesnt work and your car is a automatic with the shifter in the center console there is a cable running to the transmission that sometimes becomes loose causing the car not to be fully into the park position.

in the fuse box there is a flasher relay change that out also if you have set off the stock alarm on the car it may not be shut off all the way I would try disconnecting the battery and resetting the computer and check all the fuses to make sure one isn't bunt out

sounds like a voltage surge from trying to jump start in the wrong place has fused a few components. you need a mechanic or auto electrician to take a look.

Did they work before replacing the master switch? If not, check fuses and (sometimes) relays -- information is in your owner's manual, or search online. If the windows worked previously, either the new switch is no good or somehow it wasn't connected properly.

Let's get this straight , when you turn the key to the start position ,what happens ? Does the starter engage an spin the engine ? Or not . If you what help you need to give better descriptions . You turn the key on an the dash light come on , do the warning light's go off after a few seconds ? Is the anti-theft system light on an then goes off . Do the headlamps work , an shine bright ? Viewing a wiring diagram of the starter electrical circuits to see what it takes to make the starter spin the engine would also be a good idea . It just so happens the starter is computer controlled .
Circuit Description
Moving the ignition switch to the START position signals the body control module (BCM) through discrete inputs from the ignition transducer that engine crank has been requested. The BCM verifies that theft is not active and sends a serial data message to the engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM) requesting engine start. The ECM/PCM receives a 12-volt signal from the park/neutral position switch or clutch pedal start switch notifying that it is safe to start the engine. There is a splice on this circuit in the fuse block-underhood that supplies power for the starter relay coil. The starter relay coil control circuit is then grounded by the ECM/PCM closing the switch in the starter relay suppling 12 volts to the S terminal of the starter. Ground is supplied through the engine block.

Your best bet , have it towed to a qualified repair shop.

Buy 2 new generic brand bulbs and put them both in. I did the same for my daughter's car and was baffled when the other one didn't work.

If you have to ask it's way over your head. Rod bearings are about as deep into an engine as it gets. Best bet is to pull the engine and take it to a machine shop.

If it is a detachable face,make sure the face is on good. If not and you checked the fuses,then you need to check the wireing to the radio. FYI these late model cars have fuses under the hood as well as inside the car.
