Re: [DML] Starter run on.

I did a test today which leads me to think the problem is in the ignition switch. Let me know if this make sense. 

I hooked up a test line to the white -red wire coming out of the ignition switch (its suppose to go to the start relay).
I started the car cold and the light came on and then went off with the key in the run position. I let the car warm up a little and then restarted it. This time the light came on (bright) then stayed on (dim) after I turned the key to off and removed it. The starter keep running. Therefore, if I have the right wires it tells me the ignition switch is faulty.

I don't know why this didn't show up when I did the pull out the start relay test (see below).

I want to send out a special thanks to John Hervey for his concern and help with trying to resolve this problem.

  It appears everyone else is busy talking about trademarks, so I will attempt to help.
  The blue/yellow wire goes to the ignition resistor which assists in starting the engine item #56 on the black and white wiring diagram).  Your run on problem sounds like you have a crossed wire somewhere in the starting circuit that is keeping the starter "hot" after you release the key.  You need to back track the wiring from the starter and see which wire is "hot" and then see what is causing it to be hot.  Let us know what you find.
