SOURCE: car will not turn off
You have a bad ignition switch the mechanical part is operating but when it is turned off it is not pulling the switch to the off position, two things that I can think of can cause this. One is the rod that runs down the steering column is slightly bent from wear over time and allows it to start but when the rod moves in the reverse direction the bent rod is slightly to high to pull the switch to the off position. The other problem could be with the switch itself the return spring inside the switch could be broken so the switch does not turn off. You can remove the bottom kick panel and disconnect the battery then with a flash light look on the top of the column and see if you can see the rod moving when turning the key off and on if it's moving then it is the adjustment of the rod or the switch. To remove the switch you will have to drop the steering wheel down to get to the switch, you may be able to get to the switch without dropping the column but it will be harder to see what is wrong with it. There are two bolts that hold the switch on and has a multi flat connector on it you have to squeeze the two plastic ears on each end of the switch to release the wire harness. Then you will have to wiggle the connector loose
