car is off but clock, radio and blower stay on

Asked by Nov 22, 2015 at 09:28 PM about the 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

Ignition switch is defective probably. They are inherently bad. When turning the ignition off, it goes into the accessory slot and still lets you remove the key. That's the first hint to it breaking apart inside. Replace immediately lol. Not a hard job if you can do minor repairs.
