Well, I have a wire going directly to the fuse panel under the dash, I tested the terminal that I plugged it into, it has switch power. But the engine doesnt turn of when I turn the ignition off. Which tells me that I have constant power at all times. Did I wire the engine bay wrong? I also tested the wire that goes to the alternator, and it has 12V at all times. Is that right? Does anyone have any ideas?
When you turn it off , does the engine run on for a short time or stays running for awhile till you kill it ,however your doing that ?? If the electrical power is OFF when key is turned off, then I suggest you look at your idle speed. If its too high it will continue to run due to compression & fuel ,even with no electrics to spark it.. basically like the big tractor~trailers..hope thats it, but you need to fix it asap, because desiel run~on isnt good for the motor..let us know,,hey guys am I right or wrong here ??
