Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I would need a little more detailed information on what the problem is. With the limited information given....it sounds like you have an ignition problem. Not sure if you are bi-passing the ignition switch and bridging the starter...If that is the case the engine will turn over but without having the switch open on the "on" position the car will not stay running.
