304 will not turn off when key turned off and removed
I could use some help.
The 304 runs beautifully, but today for some reason, when I turned off the key, the engine did not quit while at the gas station. I accidentally turned it too far in the 'on' position, which gave power to the started, then returned the key to the 'off' position and only then did it turn off.
I returned the Jeep to my garage and turned the key to the 'off' position, and the engine would not turn off when I turned the key to the 'off' position. I could even removed the key. Nothing changed. I activated the starter by turning the key all the way 'on', and again, the engine would turn off. I don't want to do that again if possible.
Both instances, the engine ran exactly the same with the key in the 'on' position, and when the key is removed. In both instances, with the engine on, when I turned the key as if I was going to start it, the starter squelched, and the engine died when I turned the key to the 'off' position.
The Battery and Selenoid are new within the last 6 months. It runs great. The only thing I have done recently was change the engine oil, changed the transmission oil, and changed the headlights to KC-Hi-lites. I don't think I've done anything that would cause an electrical issue.
