I'm hoping maybe someone has had this happen to them and will be able to point me right to the cause. My 67 RS has been doing something odd lately. When the key is in the ignition and turned to the first position, the dash lights and the tail lights come on. The light switch is in the fully off position. The headlights will come on as normal when the switch is activated and the dash and tail lights remain on. With the car running, there is no change.
---Here's another twist. IF the light switch is on, and I turn the key to the off position, the engine continues to run and the GEN light comes on. If I push the light switch to the off position, the engine turns off while the key is in the off position.
---If the switch is off before I turn the key to shut the motor off, it turns off normally.
This sounds like a circuit is crossed up due to some kind of short or improper grounding. I suspect the switch but would like to know if anyone else has had this situation.
