Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
Engine keeps running even when I take keys out.
. And the engine stopped when the battery got fully drained.
I turned on the crank on the car and it started with a louder than normal sound, so I turned it off and removed the keys. The sound kept going even when I took the key out and when I popped the hood the engine was running although didn't seem like there was combustion, the serpentine belt was running and it kept running until the battery got drained.
A unique thing was when I put the key back in and turned it to ON position the engine started up but with a louder noise.
My little knowledge tells me that the starter motor probably kept running even when the engine started and did so even when I turned off and removed the key. Any suggestions as to what might have happened are appreciated.
have the same problem?
