Question about 1996 Nissan Altima
Either the blower switch wiring has been altered, or you have a short to power in that circuit. The dash controls are not supposed to have power without the key. Are there any other functions that stay on with the key off? Stereo? turn signals? This would indicate a problem in the ignition switch, which is where all power must go through first.

Resistor switch. The rotary switch on the dash is very, very uncommon. It is also not the blower, because it works.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the help, it was the resister assembly like you suggested."
If your key is magnetic and it is not jambed in there to much you may be able to get a magnet and pull it out. If it is stuck pretty bad you will have to take the steering column apart, but trying calling a lock smith first, he may be able to help.

sometimes if the steering wheel is in a bind the switch will not turn try turning the wheel a bit while at the same time turning the switch good luck
