Re: If you don't mind....

I got this question from:   "S. Saylor" <sds@flashpnt.com>
And thought I should send it to the Quattro list in addition to 
replying to him.

Wow!!  This is a new one on me.  Logic sez that there must be a major 
wiring branch coming off the ignition switch which has problems - or 
POSSIBLY the switch itself is not re-engaging the normal circuits 
after the starter switch is released.  BUT - I dunno.  My first guess 
would be to look at the ignition switch and make sure it's 
re-connecting the accessory circuit after the starter is released.  
Sounds like a multitester job to check the switch output - and 
possibly some Bentley work.

This gent is not on the Quattro list, I think...so please respond 
directly to him.
