Question about 1999 Dodge Intrepid
First - car would not start when key turned all lights came on and if held would eventually start
Then turn key and nothing happens no lights but the ignition key beeps
most recent i was switching the fuses and it started to turn over - it then started to turn the starter but would not stop when I turned the key the starter kept spinning and would not engage.
Now it is back to turn the key it beeps but no dash lights except clock
If the key is returning to the 'Run' position as it should, then either a relay controlling the solenoid or the solenoid itself is hanging up. The heavy contacts that send power to the starter can develop rough surfaces that can temporarily weld themselves together causing the starter to run on even though the engine is running and the key has returned to the proper position. There is also a spring that should normally help return the solenoid's contacts to their 'off' position that may be weakened.

2000 Dodge Intrepid is equipped with an alarm system that is triggered
when unauthorized entry is attempted. In some situations, such as having
the Intrepid valet parked or when it is being serviced by a mechanic,
the alarm system needs to be disarmed so it doesn't go off. Disarming
the alarm will prevent it from being activated until it is armed again.
