Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
While the problem is occurring will the engine shut off if you unplug the ignition switch? Check this for me and post back with the results and we can work from there.
No problem, stay dry and post back when you can. I'm here all day.
I am only seeing the one reply in the link, did you unplug the switch and see if the engine shuts off/
Well if it shuts off with the switch unplugged that would indicate the switch is either bad or you have short to power in the wiring diagram. Are you replacing the ignition switch or the lock assembly?
Yes to which one, the lock assembly or the actual ignition switch?
Well if you are sure the new switch is not defective then that would only leave a short to power someplace in the circuit and or harness. All your doing when you unplug the switch is opening the circuit.See some thing to check.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/Igntion%20sept%2014.pdf
Okay, if you sure the new switch is not defective then something has to be causing a short to power.
Something has to be feeding into the power circuit, unfortunately with out being there to do some hands on checking as well as testing I can not tell you where for sure.
Yes that is possible but with out being there to do the testing I can not be for sure. One way to determine if that is the case is start pulling relay one at a time while the problem is occurring.
