    My friend has a 90' Accord, when youu go to start it turn the key to the thrid position the car starts, if you let the key return to the on position it dies. Now if you hold the key half way between start and on it will stay running. Help me out here guys, Im at a loss with this one.

    Even if you take the actual switch off of the colum it still does it.

    well a sure way of knowing would be to take it all out twist the proper wires together and the touch the starting wire to it and see if it works like that

    kick it out and start it with a screw driver ;)

    I would definitly check the wires before buying a new one. If its a short before the switch no point in replacing it.
