engine wont turn off with ignition off and key out (HELP)

first it started last week after a snow storm i woke up one morning and the wipers were on all by them self with no key in ingnition i had to pull the big 20amp metal fuse by the pass feet the fuse panel there and i could turn wipers off by turning the wipers to high or low they would turn off. then yesterday we got more snow just a dusting my wife started it cause the light on odometer was on and the aps light and check engine light was on even with the key not in it someone noticed it all on and told her so she started it for a min so batt wouldnt die and she couldnt get the engine to turn off even with the ignition off and key out she tried jigling it and doing it back and forth to get it off but it wouldnt turn off. She ended up calling me and i told her to pull the fuel relay and then it ran out of gas. i figure its the ignition but not sure dont want to just start replacing things and fall into a money pit i dont have very much money im unemployed and want to see if any one else had this problem or know what it might be so it dont turn into a money pit which i aint got. Thanks

take what you can apart and look inside, make sure no wires are sliced or disconnected, as far as turning it off, pull the gas line but have something to plug it like a screwdriver (its gana shoot a lot of gas out if not)

Are you serious? You are telling him to pull of a pressurized gas line to kill the engine? Thats not smart at all. Just pull the fuse jeez.

An engine needs fuel, air, compression, and spark. So far we've covered cutting fuel, and cutting air. It's a bit difficult to cut out compression, but you could kill spark pretty easily. Either unplug the coil (It will possibly shock you), or unplug the ECU.

That probably covers all the bases, other than the diesel guys and spraying a co2 fire extinguisher down the intake.
