It's a 1991 Nissan 300zx. I changed the ignition switch, and the car won't cut off. It was doing this with the old ignition switch. I can't cut it off with the key
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 6 months ago

Are you calling the ignition switch the electrical box or the part the key goes in?

The one that the key go in. On the steering column
Auto Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 6 months ago

That is called the ignition cylinder. If you unplug the ignition switch on the steering column does the engine then shut off?
