This story reminds me of the time I used to work for a rental car agency. One of the customers returned a car because the car would not turn off when the ignition switch was turned off. You could remove the key and the car, a F*&D Lincoln Town Car no less, would just sit there and idle away. This went on for 30 minutes while the master mechanic tried to figure out how to shut it off. He disconnected the battery thinking that would work-NOT! Finally he gave up and said he was going to call the dealership to see what they recommeneded. My quick thinking was to grab a towel and rip the coil wire off thereby stalling the car. Let me tell you, even with that darn towel that was about the most electricity I have ever had pass through my body! Needless to say the car stalled. And to think, all I really had to do was remove the fuses one by one until it stalled. What can I say, I was 16 at the time and not nearly as smart as I am now..
