Q: Car won't turn off

asked by on

My car will not turn off. It probably has something to do with the ignition cylinder.

The ignition switch was redesigned to stop this issue and not being able to turn the ignition off. I recommend a having a certified mechanic, such one from YourMechanic, inspect your car, and replace the ignition switch, if deemed necessary.
