Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you. I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confidentwe can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skilllevel. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies toget to satisfactory results. Please be patient! I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it.You're describing a defective ignition switch.
Okay, then that would mean that EVERY aspect of the ignition switch is working then?

You need to check the back feed voltage then to see what is staying on when you turn off the key.
Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
If you have the tools and knowledge, you can do this all your self and I can provide you with shots of good and bad data. These types of problems are NOT always easy and may require professional help, it's not unusual.
How about if we start to perform some tests and really find out what's wrong instead of guessing, we really want to diagnose this, but it's impossible by discussion alone. Let me know when you have some results to share so we can get this fixed.
Thanks again, Ron
Anything is possible, that's why we really need to start some diagnostics and I'll help you through it once you begin.
