Posted by coolcal159 on

    This car has a security feature...a kill switch. Is it possible that this is activated? The previous owner told me to insert the car in driver side door and unlock the car to deactivate it. I just recently purchased the car and it at shop with a engine being installed in it. 1993 Mercedes Benz 500 SEL

    I am thinking the kill switch might be activated. I am not at the car. The shop called me with this problem. They are closed now. When they open I will call with the information on how to deactivate the kill switch. Could this be a possible problem?

Check if your battery has enough power by testing the voltage and if possible try to jump start the car.If that does not solve then you need to check the starter motor but it may be some other problems.Hope this helps.

Zidane.tompsoni have a 1986 ford bronco 2 2.9 V6 im haveing some sorta electrical problem after driveing 3-8 minutes the fual pump will shut off and the truck dies i them try to start it up and the starter...


sounds like your fuel filter might be plugged causing the engine shutdown.
sounds like the solenoid on the starter is sticking causing your starter to stay engaged and powered up. the starter will stay powered up and will continue to spin until the starter solenoid is disengaged.
one other area to look at is the ignition switch. if that is bad it will continue to send a power signal to the starter solenoid keeping it engaged. so, you may want try unplugging that first, while your starter is running. if continues to run, then i would say it is the starter solenoid and not the switch. good luck

Car wont turn over and start, but lights and everything else works It will not do anything when you turn over the key.


The key switch connects to the ingnition switch which electrically actuates the circuitry to engage the starter motor, the link or this switch could be the fault if all cables/wiring and relays/fuses are good.

My sons golf will not start, turn the ingnition


Hi,
Check/clean your battery terminal connections. If your battery is good, and assuming the starter and ignition switch is good, this would be a suspected culprit.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Car will not start.


Next step is checking the battery, or replacing it.
After that, check that the 'security' key or whatever is used on that vehicle isn't messed up. Might be a fuse for that as well.

Starter wont stop spinning


The starter relay may be sticking on start. Get someone to start truck and when problem starts hit relay lightly wih hammer. A cheap voltmeter will tell you if relay is sticking or still energised from ingnition switch after key release from start position.

Hit the starter with a hammer and see if the teeth are stuck if it works you should be able to drive for about a month or two but you will have to replace the starter eventually. Or carry a hammer with you at all times; and that will even quit working at some point and time.

Try jumping the solenoid,pull the actuator wire off the solenoid(the small one)This will engage the starter so make sure your in nuetral or park,run a wire from the solenoid actuator to the positive battery post,if the starter engages your ignition switch or starter relay have become faulty,if the starter does'nt engage the solenoid has gone bad.Post back if you need more help.
