1997 olds achieva...replaced the ignition switch now it starts but immediately shuts down. I can repeat this by turning the key off and re-cranking. just won't keep running??

Could be any of the following:
New switch it is defective
You did not get all the wires back on
A wire broke while you were changing out the switch
Bad fuse
Loose connecting in the circuitry (hardest one to solve)

1998 olds were is the light relay found

Your day time running lamp relay is located in the fuse box under the hood. Remove the fuse box cover and on the bottom of the cover you will see a fuse and relay diagram.
Good luck, let me know.
