    1989 suburban, trucks sitting in driveway runnning as I type, I shut off ignitition and it keeps running, Is there a relays switch anywhere, when I turn key off, all accessories/ac do turn off, making me think theres a relay?

    thanks in advance for any tips.:bow:

    update....
    well I was able to track it down from smell last night, not sure, but from looking in chilton book, its called "hot fuel module" it looks like a small circuit board . I can remove the small module and the truck starts/stops like normal, but I think if the truck sat for a while it wouldnt have the fuel presure to start. Now my only worry is that theres a short somewhere elese that cause this to fail?

    So I did some searching, and find little info on hot fuel module, maybe its not needed? is it a emmisions thing? cant find replacment.

    the igniton switch is located on the top of steering column near the floor with a rod that runs up to the tumbler sometimes the switch can go bad or the rod could bindup/break/come loose

    I'll second the iggy switch. 20 minute job to replace...

    Our 88XJ used a GM column and I replaced the iggy switch in that about 6 times before getting rid of it.

    That kind of thing has usually been a result of a bad ignition switch for me (on several make and models of vehicles).
