Help, I am trying to find the ignition relay on my 69 ss. I'm having trouble with the radio staying on when the key is off. I have narrowed it down by the schematic in the 69 chevelle service manual to the ignition relay.
It sounds like you are trying to install an after market radio. At least that's what I think I am reading. You sure you have it hooked up right?. The attached thread describes a typical after market hook-up.
Your power wire should connect to either the original yellow radio wire or a terminal on the fuse block marked ACC or IGN. The fuse block radio fuse gets power from the ignition switch. Still don't know what ignition relay you see. Where do you see it on the schematic? What is it next to? http://www.chevelles.com/forum/Forum22/HTML/001615.html
There is an ignition switch at the bottom of the steering column. A rod from the key moves the switch. It may be out of adjustment. Simple to adjust, loosen the 2 (?) screws and slide it a little. But I'd think that you would have other items staying on too. Does the heater fan work in the OFF position?
