Hey, all. First time posting, here
I searched the forums but didn't find quite what I needed. I've got a 2005 Aveo that's been paid off for years. At some point in the car's life, someone installed a Passport GPS system, I guess to keep track of the previous owner. It's only ever been an inconvenience to me, making me wait until the unit beeps before I can start the car. Last week, the unit went out. I had to remove it and rewire the ignition in a laundromat parking lot.
They did a hack job when they installed that thing. I un-spliced the wires running to it and re-wired the ignition switch. I was able to start the car and announce to the world that I'm the smartest man alive, but when I turned the key off, the car kept running. I had to unhook the battery to stop it. I thought maybe I had damaged the ignition switch while working on it, so I replaced it. No dice. The car still runs on.
Any help you guys could provide is much appreciated. Thanks!
