Ignition Lock Cylinder Short?
I have a 69 Camaro, tilt steering column. I had been having some issues with the battery going dead. I was able to track it down to the ignition lock cylinder. With the key out of the ignition, in the off position, if I move the ignition lock backward just a hair, the test light that I have between the battery ground and ground comes on. If I move it forward, it goes off.
The obvious thing would be just to make sure when I turn the car off and remove the key, move the ignition lock cylinder forward. But if I forget, then I end up with a dead battery.
Does this sound like the ignition lock cylinder has an issue or the wiring?
