    My friends did this about 2 weeks ago. He shut off the key and the motor shut off but kept cranking, like it was still running but at a very slow speed. Finally we got it tuned off and smoke started pouring out from the passenger side, so after it clears and cools down we chec the fluids and nothing was leaking (thoght it might have been the freeze plugs...?) Then we looked at the starter and saw that it was completely fried, like it caught on fire...

    Hope this helps.

    I think the starter is fine because i can shut it off by pulling fuel pump fuse, and then it will start back up, and it runs fine, i guess there is some wires melted together somewhere just dont know where??????

    Thanks 4 input

    If you got a buddy close by try swapping out the alternator.

    would that cause all the lights in the dash to stay on like the key is on? I can pull the ecm fuse under the hood and everything will work like suppose to (i guess?)
