Here's the deal,
Of coarse, the car ran fine last weekend. Sometime between then and Friday, the Boogie Man came and decided to have some fun with my car.
The main problem is that when I turn the key to the off position when the car is in park, it will not turn off. It is like I never even turned the key off.
The car will shut off if I turn the key to the off position when it is in Reverse. Unfortunately even though the engine is off, the GEN light and the light on my tach are still lit. I have had to disconnect the battery terminal to keep it from draining the battery.
My first thought was the that the ignition switch is bad. Is there a way to test it? The car starts just fine though.
By the way, the regulator does have a diode installed in line for the number 4 terminal. It is the one that came with the Crane Hi-6. I checked to make sure it was not broken. I did notice that the wire butt joints where the diode is connected were pretty hot to the touch. Should I install a new diode?
