: 2007 Cadillac Escalade continues to crank after started or Key removed

My 2007 cadillac Escalade ESV continues to crank over after the key has been removed or the vehicle has been started. The truck threw engine code P1682, I am not sure what I should do to fix this error. This paticular escalade has 103K on it and has not had any other electrical issues and nothing has been added or changed. Thanks for all of your guys help.

Bad ignition switch inside the column (that's the code for ign switch). Or, starter is bad, solenoid plunger is stuck.

It seems to me to be more of an electronic thing. It happened after a car wash. Does that give you any other ideas?

I'm sorry to hear that, Paul! Are you considering taking your ESV to a Cadillac dealership for service? I would recommend that approach, but if you are more of a DIY person, I'm sure you will find plenty of ideas from the forum member here (like Tech80!). Please don't hesitate to email me anytime at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com and I would be happy to look into the matter further for you.
