This situation is referred to as "diesling." Usually occurs when the engine is hot and the carb needs adjusted.

AnswerGuess what Keith, there are no carbs on a 1998 prelude, they,ve been fuel injected for a while now,SONNY,. Look dude your best bet is its something with the ignition, or the brain(computer) of the car. Keith doesn't know what he is talking about. GOOD LUCK Answerit is the ingition swicth is bad causes a short. Pontiac transport have the exact problem. I have only seen 1990 transport so far. about ten i have done.

The ignition switch on a 1996 Mercury Tracer might lock up and release only when the shifter is removed from park and then put in the park position again because the sensor is getting worn. This sensor lets the ignition know that the car is in park and it is safe to remove the key. Check the shift position sensor.

With the cylinder removed there is no easy way to turn the switch it would normally operate to the "off" position.

If you accidentally turn the ignition to the locked position while the car is moving then your steering wheel will lock in its current position which is dangerous. Vehicle ignitions that use keys have a built in safety device that prevents the key from being removed while the switch is in any position except "lock". In some older vehicles the key can be removed due to wear on the safety latch. In a vehicle with automatic transmission you cannot turn the ignition to the lock position unless the transmission is in "P" or Park position. With a manual transmission you can switch it off in any gear.
