Light on = direct short to ground
could be an error in the new harness or an actual "short"
problem is that this is not stock so unles I could see what was done it would be tough to fix on-line

Removing the key switch on a 1987 Chrysler fifth avenue

If you are refering to the ignition switch then without the key you will have to remove the whole steering lock assembly and as the retaining bolts have no heads as they are sheared off you will need to try to remove them with a centre punch now if no joy then cut the thing off with a small radial disk cutter is the only option and renew the unit complete ,Do not damage the transponder behinder the shroud and when new lock fitted then the car will need the immobilisor re-programmed

My fifth avenue runs real good then just stalls

If you still have the lean burn ignition system, it has probably gone bad. Chrysler dealers used to sell a kit that included a new distributor and module to fix this problem and get rid of the lean burn system. They are probably still available online or ebay.

The car starts OK. When driving, sometimes the engine stalls and suddenly starts again and starts accelerating at the same time.

Before you tear apart and replace the whole car like I did, you have THREE converters on that car. The front two are part of the y-pipe and one on center pipe. Vacuum check when hot or look under it in the dark after running about twenty minutes, any glowing red in converter. you need to clean or replace. vinegar and distilled water soaking, it can be done, will help clean the y-pipe one, the other is 75 bucks aftermarket and worth the change.
