There is a piece of linkage that connects the ignition lock to the ignition switch that may be broken.

It's #13 in this picture.

Is it moving the ignition switch when you rotate the key?

You're going to have to start following a wiring diagram to find out where the power is coming from. It has to be something to do with the ignition switch or it's wiring. The computer, coils and injectors are all staying powered up so that has to be coming from the ignition switch somehow.

? Kyle: Just asking if this will shut off now if you turn key more towards the ACC position? You also shouldn't be able to take key out but if that shuts engine off you may be back to that rod #13 isn't so 100% correct (guess) and fix if so will be more of WHY it's off the spot? Trauma* IMO the #1 reason,
T
* Includes, prior theft attempts, fixed accidents, use of wheel to hold in place for towing, steering without power assist etc...
