I have 2 weird issues regarding the electrical system of my trailblazer.
1) Could not turn off parking lights
2) Engine starts with key switch in off/lock position
I had a dead battery with a 5 volt reading, the parking lights are on and could not find a way to switch them off
, the battery charger could not charge the battery with that power drain. I disconnected the battery and did a 18 hour battery charge.
When I connected the negative battery cable I could hear a few click and ticks, and then about 4 seconds after tightening the cable… the starter begin cranking the engine and the engine started running.
I did not have the key in the steering column and the position of the key switch is in the lock position.
This is a movie script in the making.
I put the key in the key switch and turned it to the on position and then turned it back off, the engine continue to run. WHY?
