What could explain a truck that starts on its own?
My 95 chevy s-10 starts on its own in the middle of the night and I don't believe in ghosts. I now have to disconnect the battery every night. I have to be careful when removing my key or it will start in the acc position when I turn it too far. Put in a new ignition and I still have the same problem. Somehow something is loose and slips into the acc position....it can take 5 minutes or hours if I don't disconnect the battery. I have tried to visually find a short in the wires running through the column but no luck and am worried about testing live because of air bag wires. With no key in the ignition I can slam a door or lift the tilt wheel or slam the hood and it will try to start. I put in a new ignition and I still have the same problems. Now my key doesn't stick any more.
Did you just replace the lock cylinder? Replace the ignition switch?
just the lock cylinder
You don't believe in ghosts? Maybe it's time to start! (although if I was a ghost, I would be haunting something really cool like a Ferrari 250 SWB)
