02 wrx wont shut off???

My car will not stop running. When i urn the key off all the accessories shut off but car still runs. Im thinking its the ignition switch because to shut the car off i pull the ignition fuse. And im on my 3rd switch in 6 months. Any ideah why? Any suggetsions would be great guys thanks.

Probably an ishload.

Hey, I just thought of something. Does your car have one of those things installed that you could start the engine without the key in the ignition or something? My buddy had that in his 90's Dodge Ram and he would take the key out and everything and it would still run, but if he hit the brake pedal it would turn off. Try it.

So everytime you change out the ignition switch it fixes the problem(obviously temporarily)?You might have a short in the wiring,bad ground,sticking relay....Try reseting the ECU and see what happens.You have a MT or AT tranny?
