Truck keeps cranking while key is off?

Asked by Aug 27, 2015 at 06:57 PM about the 1990 Ford Ranger XLT Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Okay I replaced the solidnoid and starter
and the ignition switch and ignition lock.
When I start my truck the starter keeps
going even if I turn the key off. Only way to
stop is to disconnect the battery. Somtimes
it won't do it but if I go somewhere and turn
truck off and leave truck for while come
back and start it the starter keeps going.

Some ignition switches are adjustable. May need to be adjusted so that it will turn off when turned off.
