FC Ignition Switch
« on: November 25, 2018, 09:50:53 PM »
So I finally got my 4G63 swapped 87 running again after almost 2 yrs.    For some reason the ACC circuit is now hot all the time, I noticed when the aftermarket voltmeter showed voltage all the time.   I pulled the column cover and at the ignition switch the ACC terminal is hot in any position.

Can the switch be disassembled and cleaned?   Or do I need to source a new switch?

First, I'd disconnect the ign switch and see if that circuit is still live.
It's possible your Acc circuit is getting power from somewhere else due to a wiring error.

Sweet Jesus I'm an idiot...the key wasn't cycling back to lock.   I'm able to pull the key out when it's in ACC so I thought that it was locked.

I did find some janky wiring why I had it apart.
