    Cannot turn engine off with the ignition switch

    Hi, My name is Paul,I am new on this site. I hope someone can make aa suggestion as how to resolve my current problem with my 2001 95 v6 turbo. Herein lies my problem: I can start my car but I cannot turn it off with the switch. I have to pull the fuel fuse and then disconnect the battery so the battey will not go dead because I cannot turn it off I must disconnect or battery will drain. I have tried a new switch,that was not the problem,the Saab mechainc said he did not think it was a relay. What are the other possibilties? Looking for suggestions before my next expense for trial and error. Thanks to all.

    So even when you pull the key out, it stays on?
