Car runs fine but when try to turn engine off, nothing happens.
Put in park, turn key off, remove key, wheel locks, take key and leave car, engine continues to run uninterrupted.
Only way to stop is pulling fuel pump or ECM fuse under hood, drivers side.
Two separate mechanics at two different shops have run through the standard protocols - alternator, starter, ignition, fuses under hood and in trunk, relays all check out. Steering column and dash taken out and starter switch removed (engine kept running). And checked for jams. No problems found.
Headlights will not go off when fuse is pulled so unhook battery positive cable each time to converge charge. Replace fuse, reconnect battery, starts fine.
Two theories have been offered-
- bug in ECM
- short in anti theft system.
have the same problem?
