you could have one or two or even three problems...


when you rotate the ignition key from the RUN position.. back to the LOCK position.. does it fell normal??? or does it feel disconnected???


there have been issues where the lock actuator has failed.. broken.. so the ignition switch is only part way in command of the ignition key..

this is embedded in the steering column and with moderate skills.. its changeable..

here is the ignition switch.. i have had these separate..  where the plastic part will drop part way out of the metal housing .. loosing contact..

you could also have a burned ignition switch above.. and a burned connector to it..

that would also keep the power on in some instances..


last thing.. i can think of.. might be that somebody modified the wiring somehow..
