Ignition switch seems fine. The car does start and drive, but just have to pull a fuse to get the car to turn off. I’ll check the power distribution wires and report back.There should be a smaller size large red wire from the positive battery post to the left inner fender power distribution connection. It has a black cover over it. That is where all the devices that work with the key off like lights and the ignition switch get the power from the battery. If that is not connected you can't crank the car or have lights.
I forgot I did replace the wire for the power distribution box while doing the engine swap, it had kinda fried itself while trying to get the engine to start for the first time.Cars that stay running can have a short in the alternator excitor wire to the large B+ wire in the alternator harness. If that happens then the car keeps running even with the key off. The wires in a bad wiring harness will short at the large gray plug at the back of the engine this will also cause a stays running issue.
If I turn the key on off on it does not prime, it does start within a few seconds still.Are you powering the ecu from a constant 12v instead of a switched 12v?
If you turn the key on, do you hear the fuel pumps prime? If you turn the key on-off-on, do you hear the pumps cycle each time the key is on?
Do you have a voltage meter?If I turn the key on off on it does not prime, it does start within a few seconds still.
