Re: 96 cadillac eldorado

Sounds like a bad switch.

P.S.
I edited your title. "96 cadillac eldorado" doesn't tell us much.

If you pulled the switch AND unplugged it, and the lights stayed on, the problem is not in the switch. Relays are with the fuses.

Ok bought a new ign 1 relay that goes under the hood in the fuse box area.......that to was not the problem......so I'm starting to lean towards the ignition switch itself......I did smell a faint burning smell like rubber before this happend......
