Last week I had a problem when my car would not turn off when I turned the ignition off and took out the key. It just kept going.
I have heard this is dieseling. Can anyone explain what this means and the cause of it?
Ok...I don't think that is what happened. Deiseling is when the car sounds like its chokeing?? This just kept running smooth as if i was getting ready to take off. Also it lasted for 10 minutes or so. I got in it, put the key back in and turned it back and forth twenty times before it finally turned off. Don't know if that did it, or if the car finally just died. Haven't started it since, have been working on interior, but plan on jumping it this week. I will have to see what happens.
I started the car and the same thing happened. This time moving the key back and forth did nothing.
I pulled the transparent wire at the fuse box, that goes to the coil, that killed the car. Everytime I kill it, I have to jump start it again and then it blows the fuse (the one at the transparent connection.
Also, I took notice that the mph, and tach were not working, and when I took the key out (the car still running) the lights would not work. If I put the key in and turned to on position lights would come on.
I found the problem this morning. Aparently while I was cleaning out some of the PO wiring jobs off the fuse box. I had disconnected the transparent wire from fuse box and put it back in the wrong spot. Yikes.
I hope this did not do to much damage to the car.
Thanks for all your help everyone.
Hope I don't make a habit of causing my own problems
