Car will shut off wont drive but engine keeps running then battery will go dead


It sounds as if your Ignition switch is damaged, or, you have a bad relay that is sticking. To check the Ign. Switch, remove the covers on the steering column to gain access to the switch, unplug it and the engine should stop, when it's running. If it's just cranking, it should stop when you unplug the switch. If it does, then the switch is the problem. The relays you'll have to troubleshoot individually with a test light.

If only the starter continues to crank after shutting down, then you need to test the solenoid on the starter as well as the starter relays and the Ign. switch to determine which is causing the current to continue to the starter.

2003 vectra 3.2 litre v6 not starting thought battery was flat as not driven for some time jump started it and drove fine.next day same thing had to jump start only drove for 5 min or so then the day after...


you need to check the alternator charge rate as this is the sort of problems associated with a low charge rate , unfourtunately you will need the engine running to do this so get a voltmeter ready for when you jump start the engine and read across battery terminals if reads below 13 volts the alternator needs replacing ,check that the drive belt is tensioned correctly as this would make alternator give low charge,also will need the OBD codes reading after all this going on , the engine doesnt need to be running for this just ignition on ,will give codes for sensor/switch which might be out because of the starting/running problems

I started the car to warm up when i came back out to leave car was off,and wouldnt start anymore,starter seemed like it got hot


stock car?
or modified with remote start (bad)

ever do a tune up this decade or every 60k miles>?
you placed your hand on the starter casing>?
the engine runs at up to 200F hot. and the starter is bolted to the
engine and will go to about 150F, that is hot, and normal.
in Alaska, less on starter, but same for coolant.(inside)_

it stall, stalls are complex but i can reduce it to a physics, answer.
1: engine lost compression or cant pump air (its an air pump)
2: lost spark (that tune up waiting. a voice calling , tune me up)
3: bad fueling, too much called flooding or starvation.
4: idle controls failed.

why not start car and drive off, the engine will last 2 times longer.

I have a 2001 bravada (all wheel drive, automatic) which my son sometimes drives. I also have an 88 Volvo which he usually drives. He had been driving the bravada occasionally and reported to me that in...


2 problems
starter is bad, (if it spins up fast and the crank shaft is stalled its a bad starter (battery charged 100% and good)
problem 2 is called low idle and will cause stalling
there are vast ways to stall any engine, (i will not list them)
are
1: egr stuck open , stalls at all stop signs.
2: isc stuck closed,
the former is harder to save the stall with right foot actions?
the later is childs play, (you are now an ISC)


that starter can in fact fail in many away.
Shorted (over current and causes solenoid to drop out)
open, starter, its dead as a door nail.
bad solenoid. causes free running of starter, it spins up real fast
and the engine crankshaft is no moving,
this is a bad solenoid or just a dirty shaft for pinion.
solenoid main contacter, bad, intermittent starts. or DEAD.
the contactor can sieze, and engine keeps cranking
this is a horrible ugly mode of fail, the engine can infact
destroy the starter (100HP kills 5ph starter by going over speed.)
theres is a clutch in the starter that prevents this, but it to can fail
or get dirty and jam.
if you were to say exactly what the starter did,. step by step
we can answer the why>?

i turn key, the starter spins ,but not engine
or same and its too slow
same and it only clicks
or same and when i release the key the starter is still making noises...
see?

You may need to reset the system.

SEQUENCE ACTIVATED BY THE PARKING BRAKE .
1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply the parking brake Once Twice
Note: The system can be set - at time of installation - to require that the parking brake be applied once or twice.
If set for two actuations, pause one second between the two.
4. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
5. Exit the vehicle.
6. Within 60 seconds, close all doors.
7. The system will stop the engine and blink the parking brakes once to confirm the sequence is valid (vehicle is
ready for a remote start command).
SEQUENCE ACTIVATED BY THE REMOTE CONTROL
1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply parking brake.
4. Send the start command (Model 801 & 2101 - Model 903 ).
5. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
6. Exit the vehicle.
7. Using the remote, send the STOP command. The system will stop the engine and parking lights will blink once
to confirm that the sequence is valid (vehicle is ready for a remote start command).

87 300ZX STARTER WILL NOT ENGAUGE. I HAVE CHECKED THE CLUTCH SWITCH AND IT IS WORKING


The starter has a thing called a starter drive. It operates with a over running clutch that is a safety that keeps it from over speeding when still engaged with a started engine. That drive needs replaced, the clutch is bad.
