msd has an issue with that. the alternator will continue to power the switched side of the wiring. install a diode on the field wire. this article discusses older versions but i've had problems with hei doing the same thing.
Then it makes me think what the previous owner did before....How did he turn the car off? Is this a type of problem that just starts to happen overtime? Ill get a diode tomorrow and see what happens.
