I just bought this 80 deville and it runs and drives decent, but the ignition is stuck in the on position and wont turn to off so I cant take the key out. How do I fix this. thanks

Pull off the lower panels under the steering column, you will see the electrical ignition switch, turn the key towards the off position, you should notice a rod coming down from the key switch, as you rotate the key the rod moves thru the switch. If the switch is misadjusted then loosen it where it attaches to the column and move it up/down till the rod aligns. Otherwise the mechanical ignition key switch needs replaced.
