When you are turning off the ignition, are you turining the key all the way to the left before taking the key out? The last position on the key barrel is for the parking light as well as the steering lock. When turning the ignition key off i only turn to the steering lock and take the key out. If this isnt the case, you have a short circuit on the ignition system.

Hope this helps.

Car locked in park

follow this steps and fix it. GOD BLESS YOU

Ensure that your vehicle's transmission is in park. If you have manual transmission you can skip this step and move on to Step 2.

  • 2 Press the brake of your car completely down with your right foot. If the key of the car is not in the ignition put it there now.

  • 3
    Hold the steering wheel of your car firmly with your left hand and the car's key placed in the ignition with your right hand. Turn the steering wheel to the right and left while you twist the ignition key as if you are starting the car. Engaging in these two motions simultaneously will release the ignition switch and allow you to turn the car on.

    "1999 Buick Century" unknown dinging draining

    It's probably your ignition not being exactly disconnected when you remove the key.Until you get a new ignition (keyswitch),just jiggle the switch with your fingers after you remove the ke7y and see if the dinging stops. my Aerostar has that problem right now. don-ohio

    My ford expedition just all of a sudden starting playing the radio in time when the key is not in the ignition and my air is blowing when key is not in ignition now my battery is dead i'm scared to drive...

    Hi.this is being caused by a faulty ignition switch the Accessory or auxiliary circuit is not shutting down, via ignition circuit breaker. this will occur in defective switch from time to time. simply replacing this ignition switch will fix your issue.

    When you turn your ignition switch all the way off, it is designed to kill all auxiliary power once this motion is initiated. if the switch mechanism is faulty, the circuit is unable to control the current, in return, allowing the current to stay closed. this is mechanism failure at the most and, the switch should be replaced.

    If you wish, i will post a battery drain test below so you can pin point the exact location where the circuit is closed when the switch is in the off position. If the current pull is located on numerous devices, this will confirm my diagnosis.


    Here is the procedure I use to isolate a battery drain. Remove negative battery cable from the battery. Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow or "light" if there is a drain. If the "light or glow" is faint, that is probably normal draw for the clock or computer. If the "light or glow" is bright, then there is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the drain. Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights.

    1989 Cadillac rear lights stay on

    It may be a turn hazard module under dash.that is the culprit! The power to the third brake light does not go through the module, but the rear brake lamps power is controlled through this module. I am looking at a drawing of one and it looks like it has two connectors with about five wires in one and six in the other. It has some cooling fins on it also.
