Car Engine Still Running Without The Key In The Ignition D:

7 posts in this topic

I had to just quickly move my car on my drive earlier today. I then turned off the ignition and took the key out, to find that the engine was still running. I put the key back in the ignition turned it forward and back again, this time the engine turned off. I tried starting the engine again, and now everything is working fine.

Any idea wtf happened? Has anyone else ever experienced this on their Focus?

The ignition relay switch must have stuck temporarily.

Also check your Oil level , if its low then it could be running on oil , which could be from a failing oil seals or turbo.

Just check to make sure it's not this , if you think this could be the problem do not run the car as "Engine Run away " could happen.

I hope it's not oil related :S I did check the level a couple of weeks ago, but I'll check again tomorrow (fingers crossed!).

For now I wish to believe that it was caused by what Clive said :P

That Diesel engine runaway sounds a bit scary, I just read up on it.

Thanks for the info guys!
