Do you mean when you release the key from start position, let go of the key, and the engine continues to turn over until you turn the key to off position???motor cranks continuously by itself. Switch ignition off then motor starts on second try. Any help????
Well it is easy enough to test but I thought the fuse issue shut down the whole system as in no power to the starter......... Hmmm I stand corrected. I have never had the issue, I just repair the boxes when they fail :smile2:
Okay, lemme get this straight ..... You drive the truck around to get it hot. Then leave it to go shopping or grab a brew for 30 minutes -Yes continues cranking but not starting until u switch ignition off. Switch on again and engine starts
This is puzzling, but not unsolvable. I wish I were close enough to tackle this face to face.Okay, lemme get this straight ..... You drive the truck around to get it hot. Then leave it to go shopping or grab a brew for 30 minutes -
You attempt to start the truck by moving key to START position, let go of key and it goes to RUN position.
Starter turns engine over for a few seconds (max of 10 seconds) with hand off key but engine does not start.
After a few seconds you turn the key to OFF or does the starter continue to run as long as it is in the RUN position?
After OFF position you count to 5, move key to the START position again, starter turns over and it starts right up?
They may have been replaced, but my suggestion to remove them while it was still cranking to see if removing one would cause cranking to stop will aide in diagnosis. Remove and reinstall crank fuse first then relay.Forgot to mention crank fuse and starter relay both replaced
Dragon2U, This made my day! Very generous and selfless of you to offer to do this work gratis!..... Tell you what, just send me the box and I will swap it out for free, just pay return shipping. Hate hearing about all that money spent on nothing :frown2:
You anywhere near Myrtle Beach, SC? I am heading there this coming week for my BD for a few days. If you are close I will repair the internal wire for you while there.
@nj6969Thanks for the feedback, glad he is back on the road!
