In my 1995 ford thunderbird i put my igition key in and started my car and now the car wont shut down the key comes out and the car keeps running i have to pull a fuse and disconnect the battery?
the key switch in the steering column has gone bad and has a part inside of it that is probably broke.
How do you disconnect power to the battery on a 99 Plymouth Breeze 2.4 so you can connect things to the terminals?
Does the engine need to be running when you disconnect the positive battery cable to shut off the check engine light?
Battery will be flat because spark plugs were running straight off your battery because the alternator was not charging your battery as you were driving. You can test this by jump starting your car with another car and after your car is running you should be able to disconnect your battery and car should still run off the alternator. If your car stops than your alternator is RS. Battery will be flat because spark plugs…
put a voltmeter on the battery and test voltage, then start the cycle and check again. A battery at rest should be at about 13 volts, with the engine running it will be at 14 or above. to be sure disconnect the positive battery terminal while running, if there is still good volts there, or the engine does not die it is ok.
First Disconnect both battery cables, then you want to disconnect the positive lead running to the fuse box. then you have to remove the strut bar that is above the battery, and finally behind the battery there is a rubber clamp holding it in place losen the bolt and you got it. you may have to also losen the fuse box to get to the bolts in the back of the strut bar.
Nothing, if the alternator is good the engine should keep running.On the other hand if the alternator is bad the engine will die/stall. In a modern car with sophisticated controllers (ECM, BCM, TCM, etc.), NEVER DISCONNECT the battery with engine running. These controllers have semiconductor chips that are sensitive to voltage spikes and transients which become pronounced when battery is disconnected.. Even the power diodes in the alternator can be stressed and eventually damaged.
