Do you have any aftermarket accessories hooked up that run off the ignition? The circuit is weak and if your running accessories without relays then you may have fried the ignition.
A popular spot for shorts is where the wires enter the headlight bucket. Sometimes they get chaffed there and will cause an intermittent short.
