We have a 1996 mercury cougar. Engine will turn over but will not shut off. Any ideas?

It happened to me, im not saying it is the same thing but look into it, mine was a actuator and pin in the steering column that was broken and wouldn't pull back when you turned the ignition off.


Sounds like you have a bad ignition switch. It stays in the run position instead of going to the off position and stopping the flowing of current to the ignition.
