Hardly seems worth changing the lock cylinder, since it is not that easy.
Just be more careful turning the ignition off.
Put in an ignition indicator light on the dash if you have to.

Nissan altima 1996, cabin fan blower switch works without the ignition key. If I forget to turn off the fan control switch it drains all battery.


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.

Heat fan stayed on when key off, killed battery, recharged battery, tried to pull fuse for heater fan, still ran, pulled power connector to fan. When tried to reconnect this morning, fan not working....


Did you remember to replace the fuse?. So, the fan kept running even with the controls in the off position? Were there any other accessories that would run with the key turned off?

1999 GMC Suburban K2500 7.4L 4x4 starting problems


I the fuses and relays are good for the pump it could be a bad pump especialy if you was having starting problems make sure you have power to the pump. Also do this before changing pump. Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10 mins remove key wait 10 seconds repeat this a total of 3 times. If that dont work try a different key do the same thing. This relearns your key to the ignition it started with Gm cars and trucks from 1999 to to 2006. It is a big problem but there is no recall that I know of. If that dont work a dealer needs to probably replace and reprogram your ignition switch and keys

Passenger side fan stays on


If the heater blower motor resistor failed then the heater will stay on full blast to keep your window clear, for safety. If the key is turned off and the fan still blows then I suspect you have an ignition switch problem. Main power comes from the key switch to feed the heater system. The plug at the ignition switch could be melted and making contact or an internal switch problem. The switch is located on the steering column under the plastic cover.Unplubbing the switch should help diagnos the problem.
