I had a well worn ignition lock.

The key would come out and it would still run. I had to put the key in the rotate it to the off position to turn it off. If it's not that then it's some electrical fault. The story doesn't tell us where the fault is.

Most folk will not get this fixed due to the price. If it works as is and you just have to shut off the lights, why not keep going?

Hi, Misies; This sounds like a faulty multi-function switch. The ignition, lights, turn signals, wipers, ect. run through this switch. I'd suggest having a mechanic confirm prior to replacing it, though. Otherwise, you can have a Priest do an exorcism. Happy
Good luck.

According to me, there might be some electrical issue in your car. May be some wires are not working properly. You should verify this from best electrician.
