So apparently my car had turbo timer that wasn’t fully taken out. Now the issue is my car won’t shut off when I turn key back and take it out. Everything powers off but motor runs heard this is possible issue. Now how would I revert it back to stock to disable turbo timer wiring and such?

it should have a wire going to the e-brake switch. if you disconnect the wire it shouldn't activate.
On the blitz turbo timers its a purple wire. im not sure about other brands

Set the timer as zero second or turn it off, then it will shut the engine immediately. or remove it if you don't need it. Normally it's sandwiched between the ignition key cylinder connector and the body harness. Just disconnect everything and reconnect the harness. Upload a pic of the unit then we can probably tell you more.

the problem is the timer itself is not in the car just the wiring is.... im wondering how i remove this junk and go back to stock because i have not a clue on what wiring does what and how to get it back to stock unfortunatley. Im very new to the whole DSM scene.

usually the wire is spliced into the wire coming off the switch.

Remove the steering column cover and find the ignition key cylinder connector, normally located around there. If not just trace the cables, you will probably find it.

like DSMPT was saying, look for a jumper harness between the ignition switch and the original IG switch plug.
the plug the should be going to the ignition switch is blue and white.

The turbo timer itself is hocked to the ignition harness, not to the e-brake switch. What connected to the e-brake switch is just a wire for safety switch. I imagine the previous owner directly connected the safety wire to ground due to some reason, probably your e-brake switch is broken. That's why it's always activated. If you are not familiar with wire work. Anyways find the control unit and manually turn it off, that's probably the easiest way to deactivate it. I guess it's hidden somewhere behind dash panels, center console, maybe under the stereo.

Take the lower dash section off (four bolts {two behind small covers}), then remove the nuts holding the metal ignition wire housing that covers all the key cylinder wires, and start looking there. Upload some pics on here and that will help a lot.
