02 Cadillac DTS Wipers will not turn off and the washer fluid pump runs all the time as well If you turn the key off it will stop but as soon as you turn the key on it all comes back on?
In Cadillac DTS
The windshield washer button on the wiper lever is sticking (just barely). It probably looks fine. Also it will take 30 seconds or so for the wipers to stop once you get it unstuck. I am search for new button and return spring as we speak.

I'll I have to do on my 96 grand am is put the steering wheel all the way down (tilt steering) before putting it into park. its all oabut hearing the click after the keys r all the way back slowly turn forward and try to pull them out ull here a click and they well slide right out this used to happ…en to me, too... key would get stuck in the accessory position and my battery got drained twice. on the bottom of the steering column there is a little plastic square cover; pop it off and you will feel a round button; press this button and the key will come out even if it's not in the off position. My 1996 Grand AM had the same problem. The keys would get stuck in the ignition. It turned out to be a worn out shifter. The shifter was not getting all the way into park. I had the same problem on my 97. Like the poster above it was the shifter. There is a electric solenoid on the shifter. It's plunger is spring loaded so that when you go into park the solenoid deenergizes and allows the ignition switch to go all the way to the off posititon and release the key. The spring on the plunger gets weak or clogged with gunk and the plunger cannot drop to deenergize the circuit. The solenoid is riveted to the shifter so it cannot be changed. You will end up having to replace the shifter assembly. (MORE)
I think your battery might not be having enough power to crank the car as well as the supply the power to do all the things that it runs . Things to do; check battery wires, clean wires and battery terminal (you can use baking soda, bleach, or some kinda of soda (base) to clean off the acid). Good L…uck! Also check to see your crank's manufacture is specified. (MORE)
When you turn ignition key all the way to start it only clicks if you back off on key ranger starts fine?
Answer . Probable cause is the contacts inside the ignition switch are dirty or worn out. Some switches can be opened and the contacts cleaned quite easily, whereas others can be more difficult. Only 100% fix is to replace the switch part of the ignition switch assembly.
Your wipers on your Saturn will not shut off when engine is running but when you turn car off and turn key in the on with not starting you can turn on and off your wipers?
Answer . The windshield wiper switch is broken which is located on the windshield wiper motor. You need to replace the whole motor to fix this.
Why did 1996 LeSabre start for about 10 seconds then stop with all power gone turned key forward 3 times and power comes back but now it won't turn over?
Answer . The most likely cause is worn VATS (vehicle anti theft system) pellet which may require a replacement key. It could also be a broken wire lead from the VATS reader on the ignition lock itself, which would require a new ignition.
You have a 1972 Monte Carlo car will start while key is turned but as soon as you stop cranking the starter the car turns off?
I had the same problem with a Honda Accord. The car would start, however, as soon as I let go of the key the car would die. My problem turned out to be a bad ignition switch (you know, where the key goes in). I replaced the switch and all has been fine ever since. Try this. Start the car and instead… of letting go of the key, turn the key slightly to stop engagement of the starter. Do not let the ignition switch turn completely back as if you had let go. Does the car still run when holding the switch? I drove my Honda 30 miles holding the ignition switch in place. Boy, did my wrist hurt. Good luck! (MORE)
Answer . Most cars have a steering wheel lock that is connected to the key--try wiggling the wheel back and forth while turning the key all the way back to 'off' and pulling it ou. Also, some cars (Nissans, for sure) have a button near the key that you need to push in while you pull the key out. …If the car is an automatic, is it in Park? I don't think you can pull the key out when it is in Park, so if triedd my first two ideas, and the shifter is in Park, then perhaps something is wrong with the transmission. ...like it won't let you put it in Park. I'm not sure why that would be. (I like standard transmissions.) (MORE)
If you have 1995 Ford Taurus which turns on but won't turn off when you turn the key back and take the key out what do you do?

Answer . \nThis can happen in the older GM trucks and cars (the ones with 2 different keys, square for ignition and round for the door). There are a couple of different ways this can happen. Either the gear at the back of the lock has broken (or come loose) or there is a part further down in the… steering column that also can break that would cause this symptom. Some call it the "rack" because the dealers replacement part is called a "rack kit". (MORE)
Peugeot 1.5L 106 1997 Will not start when key turned but power stg pump runs and will not stop when key turned off Everything else works Is it related to the ignition glow timer or antitheft circuit?

Why does the radio in a 2002 Chevy Trailblazer turn off as soon as the key is turned off when it used to stay on?
Answer . \nTry pressing the "override button" to the left of the steering wheel, you may have hit it by accident. This will turn the radio off when the key is turned off and the interior lights won't come on.
Why would a 2002 Chevy trailblazers remote unlock stop working not the battery The radio to shut off as soon as the key is turned off and the rear windshield wiper to stop working all at once?
Mine has a similar issue when the rear window hatch releases (for no reason it will just pop open). In order to shut off the interior lights while I'm driving there is an "override" button to the left of the steering wheel on the dash. If I hit that then I get all the same symptoms you described, th…e rear washer does not work because the "rear hatch is open", the remote won't work and the radio will shut off when I stop the car until I close the rear hatch and hit the "override" button again. Hope that helps. (MORE)
What would cause the blower to run all the time and no matter what fan speed you have selected it runs wide open and will not turn off unless the key is in the off position on a 1999 Tahoe?
most likely it is your blower motor switch in your heater panel in your dash. the switch is burnt in the on position. replace switch from auto part store; if the switch keeps burning out it is due to the brushes in the blower motor being worn out. replace motor
Your diesel vehicle might keep running after turning off the keybecause there is still enough fuel in the system to allow it toidle. In many diesel vehicles, the engine is stopped by choking thefuel.
98 Ford Expedition starter stays on even if you turn off the key you have to take off battery connection to make it stop Doesn't do it all the time Any ideas?
Sounds like you probably need a new starter. when you take the starter off the steering wheel it may ge tricky and you may break a clip taking it apart so you might want to find out how to remove it. most americna car starters on the steering colum are fairly simple to r&r once the cover is removed.… they have nipples on the starter so it only goes in one way, however familarize yourself as to how you remove it. Usually the starter is not that expensive it's the labor that bites you. The job shouldn't take more than a hour at the most. Tools: ususlly a flat head screwdriver and a very sharp (pointed) item to depress the holding pin on the starter. Various flat/Philips I don't know about your expedition I've only done Chevy's and my corvette. (MORE)
Use Alt+F4 to close any programs running already (one press to close one program) NOTE: does not close minimised programs! When all the programs are closed, another press of ALT+F4 will ask if you want to Shut Down, Restart, Or set to Stand By mode. Then press U for Shut Down, R for Restart or S for… Stand By. Another way is to press the Windows key (between Ctrl and Alt) which will bring up the Start Menu, then press U for Shut Down, and U again for Shut Down. (MORE)

My windshield wipers will not shut off when the car is running but will turn off if I stop the car and turn off the engine. Any ideas?
wiper motor assembly. internally shorted. common problem. replacing the motor (with the control unit attached) should fix it.
What cause 2008 diesel windshield wipers automatically turn on and off when they turn on-off the washer fluid squirts and this occurs four times in a row the dealer can't find any problem?
From the way that question sounds, there is nothing wrong. When you spray washer fluid on the windshield, the wipers are supposed to automatically come on for probably 3 or 4 swipes, then turn back off - it's a convienience thing when you need to clean your windshield. If your wipers are coming on a…utomatically at random times, then you probably have a loose connection at the switch. (MORE)
A malfunctioning the ignition switch will allow the car to keeprunning after the key is turned off. You can remove the positiveground cable from the battery to shut the car off.
I had the same problem and we had to get a new switch for that side. don't really know whats the part is called maybe a relay switch but its a hole new piece that turns your bleaker and lights on on the right side of the wheel. its cheap like $40 then its should be fine ones u get that put it mine w…as after that. hope that helps u out (MORE)
All you Have to do is reboot your computer... try not to hold the shift key next time.
Its not your engine. Its the fan running to cool the engine down. They all do it and nothing is wrong with your car.
\nThe fan can run after you shut the engine down because the engine had overheated. If it stops after a few minutes this is what is happening. If it runs continuously, then the thermal relay is stuck, replace it.
Try pressing the 'Number Lock' key once to turn if off and see if it helps. Tapping the 'Fn' key five times may also work, however the first option worked for me.
\nSounds like the starter solenoid is sticking, could be faulty. You might have to pull it out and bench test it. First put a multimeter or test light on the starter solenoid wire (without it being connected to the starter) and check that it stops supplying power when you switch the key off to make …sure you don't have any wiring issues.

This question depends on your computer. Some computers have a configuration tool to edit the function key's settings. Your best bet for a solution is to contact the technical support for your computer and ask them. If you don't have that option and cannot find the configuration tool, there is a gene…ral solution. You can download the program AutoHotKey. This program has a very easy method to change the function of any key. You just need to follow the direction in the program to reprogram what it is that the function key will do. This may require some learning, but its mostly simple to figure out. (MORE)
Perhaps a problem with the anti-run on valve. With the engine running, put you finger over the opening og th hose that comes from the bottom of the valve. If the motor dies, the valve is working.

To turn Sticky Keys on or off... go to: Start > Control Panel > Ease of Access > Change how your Keyboard works > click the tick box next to 'Turn on sticky keys' > click 'Apply' > click OK, and you're done. Repeat the process if you want the sticky keys back on.
What is the reason for the warning chimes to come on in your 1997 Saturn sl1 if the key is out the ignition and all lamps are turned off?
It"s the Ignition switch costs about $150.00 to replace. It is a common occurrence in Saturn's. ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE On the other hand, try spraying some graphite into the lock mechanism. It USUALLY won't work, but it does occasionally and if you can get by without replacing the switch it will b…e a lot cheaper for you. Don't use penetrating oil, since it will just leave a gummy residue that will make the problem come right back. You MIGHT be able to get it to work if you use silicone lube. I don't remember if the 97 has air bags, but if yours doesn't, you could replace the switch yourself and save a bunch. (MORE)
IF you pressed CTRL 5 times, then press both CTRL. The same goes for SHIFT, ALT etc.
Maybe your key is stuck or has something stuck underneath it. Try tapping it to loosen it, or if all else fails, pop the key out (if you think you can pop it back in, that is) and clean under it.
It is decently possible that it is an electrical short making it register the mist setting instead. A test of this would be to turn it to the mist setting to see if it turns off, as shorts can cause triggers to switch.
The ignition switch is broken you should have a mechanic check it out because the bottom rod could be broken then you would need to buy the whole steering wheel.
What would make the ac control turn off and you can't turn it back on until the key is turned off then back on on a 94 silverado?

Dieseling is a condition which can occur in spark plug, gasoline powered internal combustion engines whereby the engine keeps running for a short period after being turned off, due to fuel igniting without a spark. This condition can occur for a multitude of reasons: Built-up carbon in the igni…tion chamber can glow red after the engine is off, providing a mechanism for sparking unburnt fuel. Such a thing can happen when the engine runs very rich, depositing unspent fuel and particles on the pistons and valves. Similarly, non-smooth metal regions within the piston chamber can cause this same problem, since they can glow red. It has also been suggested that an improperly rated spark plug can retain heat and cause the same problem. A carburetor that does not close entirely can contribute to running once the engine is off, since the extra fuel and oxygen mixture can combust easily in the warm piston chamber. Similarly, hot vaporized oil gases from the engine crankcase can provide ample fuel for dieseling. Incorrect timing. An engine that runs too hot or too lean may produce an environment conducive to allowing unspent fuel to combust. An idle speed that is too fast can leave the engine with too much angular momentum upon shutdown, raising the chances that the engine can turnover and combust more fuel and lock itself into a cycle of continuous running. Potential fixes Items similar to carburetor cleaners and carbon cleaners have been suggested as partial remedies for attempting to clean the piston chambers and valves of engines that run too rich. For those engines that have sharp metallic edges, it has been noted that poorly milled heads and blocks can contribute to this problem, so having the rough spots smoothed may help. For those engines that run too hot or too lean, verify that all mechanisms in place to cool the engine properly function as they should. Replace the thermostat if necessary. Clean theradiator. Verify that all auxiliary fans engage at their proper temperatures, and ensure that the thermostatic sensors on belt driven fans engage as necessary. In the case that there is too much angular momentum, lower the idle speed if possible. (MORE)
I had the same problem with my 1967 impala. It was the ignition. There where melted wires. so it would not shut off. That would be the cheapest and first place I would look at. it would start but not shut off.
That's just how the car is. My old 2005 GMC Sierra would do the same thing. I would turn the key off, and the radio would stay on, you just have to open the door to turn everything off, correct?
Do you ever try by pressing the brakes and then turn back off the key ti works, or press the release transmission button, and turn back the key
When i had started 87 cutllass supreme as it started lime normal but then all of a sudden car turnes off like i had turnes key back to turn off but i didnt it automatclly turned off it self?
check to see if your getting spark to the plugs, if it's not it could be a bad ignition control module inside the distribuetor, pull the cap off and the module is the thing that has all the wires plugged into it.
Could be that the battery is still too week to turn the starter. beyond that, it is probably a starter issue. If the wiring is not loose at the starter. More than likely it is a bad solenoid or starter. One little trick is to give the starter a couple of light taps (don't try to kill it) with a hamm…er or semi heavy blunt instrument. Sometimes as they get older they will seize and blunt force knocks it loose. (MORE)
Car was running fine turned it off and now it wont start the starter tested good and the battery is good turn the key and nothing at all happens no noise whatsoever?
Make sure the Car is in PARK, if it is in gear like Drive or Reverse, the Car won't start even if the battery and starter are fine.
Depending on your platform, an app (like advanced task killer free) will help you shut down apps that are wasting memory (and therefore battery life)
No, Remove the battery for over 30 minutes. this will reset your computer. Assuming something isn't terribly wrong. then the same code will just run again.
press shift five times fast and a box should come up asking if you want to turn sticky keys on, click no
Because the pressure tank is "waterlogged" . This means the necessary air has evacuated from the pressure tank and it is now full of water. It should have about 28 psi of air in it. You will need to re-pressurise it. This tank where the water enters from the pump is a critical part of your system …. It should have an 'air charge' of approximately 27-28 psi if the pressure switch is a standard 30/50 switch. If this air charge has gone down, then your water pressure will be lower. If this tank is very old, possibly silver or green in color, then it's a "galvanised tank" and is possibly 'waterlogged'. This means you have to recharge the air with a compressor (just like blowing up an auto tire) To do this, switch off the pump. Open a faucet near the tank and let most of the water out. When you think it's nearly empty, close the valve to house and pump in with the compressor till the needle on your tank gauge points to 27, 28 psi. Now switch on the pump and the pressure should be improved. -IF your tank is a pale blue one, then chances are it's a 'bladder' tank and low pressure means your bladder is leaking. -You can pump it just as I said already, but in this case it will only last 2-3 months. You basically need a new tank. In all cases check the size of the pressure switch. It's printed somewhere on it . 30/50 as I've mentioned is common but some are 40/60. In this case pump in 38 psi of air. Both pressure switches are adjustable to a small degree by turning the central spring up or down. It's essential that lower limit of this switch is 2-3 psi above residual air pressure . Always use a good round tire pressure gauge, (available in auto stores for about $5.) to check tank air pressure, Don't rely on the installed gauge, they soon get erratic. (MORE)
Depends rather on what the particular key is designed to do. Switch some equipment, car, torch etc on and off. Some equipment may not like this, because of a power surge each time it is switched on, so it might break down (fail).
