Not sure if they run a ballast ignition, but sounds like that sort of fault. Either external or internal ( in wiring to the coil ) sounds like it has power under crank, but not in the run position. See if you sill have power at the positive side of the coil when the key if in the ignition position.

run a meter over the ignition coil and check for power with the key on , if not then maybe the ignition switch is faulty .

Hi, may have some thing to do with the ignition key switch its self, ill bet if you ran a single 5 amp wire from the positive battery terminal to the positive on the coil it would continue to run, but as to where the short or lack of power to the positive of the coil is, i dont know, might have to call in an auto elect.

Re: Wierd thing XF Falcon (carby )

i would be checking out the ignition switch itself.

check for power on th ignition wire at the back of the switch,

i havent had XFs do it myself but i have seen others ( hyundai xcell`s are great for it ) where the contacts wear out in the switch.

the older models -XBs - had a small mudule that you could remove from back of switch, i guess the XF would be similar
