wierd electrical issue

spark plugs were firing.... discovered that the spark if any is very weak.. and when I turn the key to the off position the spark plugs fire one time very strong.... I have never seen anything like it... Why would the plug spark when I turn the key to the off position.... HELP ME PLEASE!!!! lost soul

Off as in OFF or off as in RUN
If it's off as in off I expect (SWAG) the plug fire has to do with stored energy in some capacitor discharging.

The cam sensor connector and the ign coil connector are the same. Make sure you didn't switch them.

try to be sure the spark plug wires are connected firmly. take each connector and put them back. if you have a weak connection, you will have weak fire.
