Engine Will Not Turn Off
This is NON-PSD related (it is a diesel though)
We have an 83' Mercedes 300D (3.0L turbodiesel)
Here's the story, we were out running some erands this evening, everything was going fine, when we stopped at GoldRush to get a lil' gin and whiskey, the car would not turn off. When she turned the key all the electronics died (radio, dash lights, ect.) but that little diesel just kept chugging along. I messed with the key in the ignition for a bit but nothing happened. We locked the doors and let it run while we were in the store. When we came out I turned the key "off" and the engine shut right down, just like normal. Sweet!!! I thought.
We got home and the car turned off "normally" again. Sweet!!! A few min. later I went outside to shovel the snow from the driveway, which requires jockying the vehicles around a bit. When I got done the Benz wouldn't turn off again. I popped the hood and shut her down using the handy dandy "STOP" lever on the injection pump.
Any ideas as to what the heck is going on here????
