Question about 1994 Toyota Previa
Likely the ignition switch is not rotating completely into the off position. If your key is extremely worn, it may be possible it can be removed without the switch exactly in the off position. Suggest trying a different (less used) key and see if problem goes away.
Else try to make sure it is in off position (clock off) before removing key. If you find that's the problem you may need new keys or switch or both.

Testimonial: "Carl you are the greatest!!!! I had a new key made when I first got the car and I just tried it and it work!!!! Everything turned off!!! I had called the Toyota dealership and ask how much they would charge me to diagnose the situation and was quoted $155. I prayed with a friend tonight and we ask the Lord to bless you mightily!! Thank you so much for responding to my question. God bless"
this sounds like a common problem for the Taurus
at each door there is a button that lets the driver know there is a door open and also dose the interior light(s)
one if these are broken
they are easy to fix and cheep to do as the part can be a used one from the wrecking yards
all you need to do is take the switch out and unplug it
do one at a time checking each time to see which switch it playing up
when you have found it just get the new part and install it
WHEN THE SWITCH IS OUT MAKE SHAW THE WIRES DONT TOUCH AS THIS COULD CAUSE A SHORT IN YOUR ELECTRICAL SYSTEM I WOULD USE MASKING TAPE TO HOLD AND PROTECT THIS FROM HAPPENING
if you don't really want to use the lights and warning light dont connect the wires and put the old switch back in
YOU MUSH NOT LEAVE THE SWITCH OUT AE IT WILL CAUSE CURROSION AND ALSO CAN LET WATER IN PLACES IT IS NOT MENT TO BE
let me know how you go

I had a Saturn that did the same thing. It turned out to be one of the switches in the door jambs was broken. The fix was less than five dollars.
Check the switch for each door. Let me know what you find out. We can proceed from there.
