It is called pre-ignition, find a friendly mechanic.


generally , cranking an engine is done with igniton where turning is done by hand with the ignition off so as it will not start


Turning my ignition on and wont turn off because it is faulty.


The key and the ignition lock are badly worn. Try a different key if it doesn't fix it you need to replace the ignition lock.


There could be several reasons why your Hyundai Atos engine is still running even though you have switched the ignition off. It could be a wiring problem in the engine. You will need to take the vehicle to a licensed mechanic.


Maybe your ignition switch has gone bad and you didn't rally turn off the eengine.


Accessory position. Radio will play but ignition is still off.


After the ignition key is turn off the car runs for about 3-5 seconds and shuts down. Recently, I had to disconnected the coil wire to stop the engine. The next morning it went back to the original problem.


* Turn on ignition. * Hold down Right trip button and continue to do so whilst turning off ignition. * Still with Right trip button held down turn ignition back on. * Release Right trip button. * With ignition still on turn Left trip button to the Right and release. * Turn off ignition.


Hold the trip meter button in while turning the ignition to run position. Do not start the engine. Turn off key and then start the engine.


You should not turn the ignition off. Put your foot on the brake and apply steady pressure to stop. At almost the same time put the transmission in neutral. You will safely come to a stop with the engine still running and P/S and P/B still working. Immediately turn the engine off as soon as you come to a stop. Turning the ignition off will cause you to loose P/S and P/B, which is a horrible idea.


What Do You Think It Does? It Shuts Off The Ignition Of Your Engine, So Basically It Cuts The Engine Off...



With the ignition OFF press and hold the odometer reset button while at the same time turning the ignition to the on position without starting the engine. After 5 seconds the light will reset.


With the ignition off, push and hold to odometer reset button in while at the same time turning the ignition to the on position without starting the engine. After about 5 seconds the light will go out.


The term for this is called "dieseling" ... nothing to do with a diesel engine, rather it's a timing issue with your cars engine.


If it's a MKIV Golf.* Turn on ignition.* Hold down Right trip button and continue to do so whilst turning off ignition.* Still with Right trip button held down turn ignition back on.* Release Right trip button.* With ignition still on turn Left trip button to the Right and release.* Turn off ignition.


With ignition on, engine off, press the gas pedal down all the way 3 times within the first 5 seconds after turning the ignition on.


I was able to reset by holding odometer button down while turning off ignition switch and turning ignition switch to on and watching dashing go from 5 to 0 and the maintenace odometer resetting to zero.


Gasoline engine - spark is cut off when ignition is turned off Diesel engine- fuel is cut off when engine is shut down


The ignition turns the car's electrical system on or off, in addition to starting the engine.


Your car is still running after turning off the ignition due to a phenomena called dieseling. The gasoline in the cylinders is igniting without a spark from the spark plugs. You are having carbon build up in the combustion chambers and it is raising your compression ratios. You need to go to a higher octane gasoline until the problem is fixed or fixes itself.


The alternator light goes out on starting the engine when both the ignition source, and alternator are producing positive voltage. When the ignition switch is turned off, the engine, and of course, alternator are still turning momentarily. The alternator is then still producing positive voltage, while the 'off' ignition switch has assumed a negative state, creating a closed + - circuit, allowing the lamp to light. This is a very normal state, and has occurred for many decades, even back to the days of cars running generators, prior to the alternator. Absolutely nothing to fear.


No; turning it off stops the fuel supply and spark ignition cycle. It does not cause the engine to immediately absorb the energy that was being produced, so there is not enough energy to stress anything to the point of fracturing. Turning the engine off at full throttle has the same effect as turning the engine off at half throttle except there are more revolutions per minute (RPMs) being generated, so it takes longer to stop. It would certainly damage the turbo if fitted.


The ignition swithch has failed and is making a continued contact
