oye-vay...here we go.

so, the mechanic working on my random stalling problem ordered a new ignition switch, but when it arrived it "had one more wire than the old one." "the wire colors are different," etc. they hooked it up and tried to start the car, and of course it doesn't turn over. he says he called the supplier back up to make sure they didn't send the wrong part and they say it's the only ignition switch they have and know of for my model/year/make of car. they said something to the effect of this "extra wire" hooking up to the automatic seatbelts...eh?!? i don't have auto belts...

anyone here know if they are full of it? and, where i can find an original ignition switch for the 1996 legacy wagon 2.2?

the insanity continues...and continues...and continues...

They should be able to ohm out which wires go to what by comparing the two switches in each position.
