Default coil fires at key on without crank turning??

iv been on google for a couple hours now, not hard but still was lookin, n couldnt find anything in relation to my problem no matter what make or model.. i just got done puttin a heater core in a cutlass and figured out the brake n blinkers on the truck so when i figured out it was doin this i didnt mess with it much, anyway- i have a 94 3.0 n when i turn the key, i dont kno if its just on run or accessory and run but i can hear the coil firing in the distributor. i did turn the key on n off a couple times n most of the time it stopped after around 3 seconds but sometimes it would go n not stop. the only way i can think that this would really b able to happen is that the trucks getting some kind of crank n cam signals... which doesnt make any sense at all.. i guess im gonna check out the diagram again n start tracing back right focusing on obvious parts, right? has anybody heard of this problem or have any input on it?? anythings much appreciated
