A friend of mine has a 00 GT. She went to turn the car off and it wouldnt shut off. She was able to pull the keys out...but the engine wouldnt stop turning. Someone pulled the alarm fuse to shut it off...or something, which shut it off, but than it wouldnt turn back on. Anyone ever heard of this before?
My best guess would be the ignition isn't working correctly. I am no tech, but I would make sure my spark plugs are firing since the car won't start now. If the ignition went out, that would make sense
Take it for what it's worth, hopefully someone else can help more.
I could see spark plugs being a reason the car didnt start....but not in this case....i dont see it atleast. The car was running strong, wasnt missing or anything, up to the point it wouldnt shut off. Than it wouldnt turn back on...once the guy pulled the fuse....hymmm, I didnt even think this was possible.
I wasn't suggesting the spark plugs are fouled. I was suggesting they many not be getting any charge to spark the a/f with b/c potentially the ignition systems isn't activating your coils like it should. The problem would be the part the key activates when you try to start the car, that in turn activates the coils etc...
This is a logical guess, they system may not work that way and I may be comopletely wrong.
