Default 1961 T-Bird with a weird problem

I got a 61 that had a problem starting when it got hot i changed the solinoid and the ground to the engine...it seems to be fixed but today i got a new problem when i drove the car it wouldnt turn off i turn the key the radio goes off the window switches dont work but the engine doesnt turn off.I had to unplug a wire on the solinoid to turn the car off ...any thoughts would be great .just a note it did this once before after i change the ground and everything i changed the solinoid but that didnt help...


Thank you

You almost certainly switched the two small wires on the solenoid. Hawkrod
