Just replace the switch. There is a spring in it to return it to the run position. It is either broken or so dirty/worn out, that it won't return.

Remove the ignition switch cylinder and inspect the contacts in the column. Look for dark spots, scratches, excessive scuffing. My guess is that cleaning the contacts with a little tiny piece of sandpaper and perhaps bending them out a little (so there is more pressure between the contacts when you reinstall the cyclinder) will cure the problem.

SOURCE: Wipers will not cancel

There is a switch in the wiper motor called the parking switch, it is most likely part of the wiper motor, replace the motor or the circuit board on the motor if it is available as a separate part from VW.
FixYa.com claims they have factory repair manuals, they have nothing of the sort, this is not to say some experts may have manuals, we do, but we work from home and in most cases have a small library. Experts are not employed by FixYa.com, we help free of charge as much as we can with the general automotive knowledge we have learned while working as auto technicians, specific test values, repair procedures and illustrations are unique to each car line, these are not in most cases available to us.

I have a 96 Chrysler Cirrus lX its starts up but turn right off what could it be,?


if it starts and runs while you have the key in the start position but stops when the key returns to the run position it is probably a faulty ignition switch that is breaking the run circuit in the switch

Starts but wont run after ignition switch is returned to the run position from the start position.


The problem is that when you have the switch in the START position, you are getting power to the ignition system, but not when in the RUN position. Most likely causes are a bad ignition switch, a faulty aftermarket alarm system [if it has one] or a bad ballest resistor wire going to the ignition coil's + terminal. You need to break out your test light and start checking to see where the fault lies.

Front wippers won't return to off position when turned off


The are contacts inside the motor assembly which are supposed to keep the motor running until the blades are parked; if the motor's just stopping in position wherever you turn the *wipers* off, there's a problem in the motor. If the problem is that the wipers don't park when you turn the *ignition* off, that's normal behavior. While it's theoretically possible to rewire the motor so that they'll auto-park when you turn the engine off, it's more complicated than just swapping a couple of leads, and requires adding some additional parts to the circuit; do it wrong, and the *engine* will keep running instead.

Ignition switch has no resistance when i turn to start it just stays in any position with the key in it could this kill my battery


Possibly yes. You need to replace that switch. The following can happen if you don't. You can damage the starter motor, or run down the battery if you leave it in the wrong position.
Here is what you should do for the very moment. When you start the car manually return the switch when the starter starts the car. Try to mimic the motion the key would take if the parts were working correctly. It you turn the key to the position that you can remove it from, do that when you leave the car. if it comes out in any position, the lock has been damaged. To test shutting it off completely,
turn on the radio and when the key is in the right position to remove, the radio will go off.
An Added precaution would be to disconnect one of the battery terminals when you leave the car.
I recommend it ,

Good Luck,
Mark

I1995 audi a6 quattro ignition switch does not return automatically to start position - i have to manually turn the key back 1/4 turn. can this be fixed, lubed or something?


Some can be repaired the first thing is to try a little wd40 in the key hole and work key in ignition, the spring back action is done by the switch not the ignition cylinder locjk, but if the lock binds up it will cause it not to return, so start with the lube, after a few days if it still doesnt return then remove covers and replace the switch on the back of key switch. hope this helps, most of the time the lube works.
