Summary
SALT CORROSION PRODUCTS BETWEEN THE STARTER SOLENOID WIRE AND THE ADJACENT BATTERY FEED IN THE BULKHEAD CONNECTOR MAY SHORT THESE CONNECTIONS, CAUSING THE CIRCUIT TO BYPASS THE IGNITION KEY CONTROL OF THE STARTER MOTOR SOLENOID. THE CAR CAN START WITHOUT THE STARTER SEQUENCE BEING INITIATED BY THE IGNITION KEY IN THE IGNITION LOCK.
Consequence
THE UNINTENDED START OF A VEHICLE WITH A MANUALTRANSMISSION LEFT IN A DRIVE GEAR CAN RESULT IN A RUNAWAY VEHICLE.
Remedy
THE STARTER SOLENOID WIRING WILL BE SEPARATED FROM THE BATTERY FEED WIRE BY RELOCATING IT WITHIN THE BULKHEAD CONNECTOR ON AFFECTED VEHICLES.
