'82 Lights staying on with ignition off

I have a 82 goldwing interstate and the ignition switch won't shut off the bike or the lights I have to disconnect the battery to turn the lights off. Any ideas on how to fix this

Bad ignition switch? Replace with known good?

A wing isn\'t an old mans bike, it\'s a wise mans bike. Often that wisdom comes with age.

Don't you just love it when a guy joins the forum, makes 1 post and disappears? Maybe he didn't like the answer.

Maybe he replaced the switch, all is okay now and he'll be back when he has another issue.

Maybe he took the bike to a shop and hasn't even been back here.

Maybe he had the key in the tank compartment instead of the ignition.

Fact is, most new users don't expect instant answers like they get here.

Maybe he could reply in any case.
Instant answer? It was 58 minutes. It seems a lot newbys expect an instant reply, like it's a chat room.

Compared to other forums I've posted to, 58 minutes is an instant answer.

On the Hyundai forum I've joined, you're lucky to get an answer at all. I hardly ever go there because there's not much activity.

I don't like it when people post and then don't acknowledge any further activity, but it's part of the dynamic of the collective. You have those who seldom post and those who post something, usually inane and often wrong, in every thread. Worrying about it won't change the fact.
