I have a 2000 Ford Mustang and before I got my key in the ignition, the starter tried to start my car. It would not stop. It was like when your car is flooded and it won't start. After playing around with putting the key in and putting it in reverse and then in drive it finally turned off. It was about 15 minutes of trying to start. What would cause that problem?
Do you have a remote starter or security system.
That could be a bad ignition switch or starter solonoid. See if you have a starter solonoid on the fender well near the battery. If you do, the next time it happens, unplug the small wire with the letter "S". If that stops it, you have a bad ignition switch.
