herbie the love bug meet my truck
I'm going to try and share a story without sounding like a lunatic. My truck seems to have gone "love bug" loco.
2001 f250, this thing must suddenly has a mind of her own. I can pull the key out and the fan still runs, the radio won't shut off, the windows still work and the door still chimes. I have read some posts about people getting water in their GEM and having similar issues, but has anyone seen this???.... My neighbor called me this afternoon to let me know my truck was trying to start (turning over). alll alone, no key nobody around and I DO NOT HAVE a remote starter. It cranked until the batteries were dead and smoke was coming from the starter. I think I fried my starter, and don't want to put a new one in until I get this figured out. My Gem appears dry.
I recharged my batteries, and unhooked the ignition switch on the steering column and the radio clock, windows and door chimes will not shut off. (the chime will if I shut the door) Please help me fix this thing, I'm in the middle of moving to my new house and would really like my truck to be working. Thanks
