6.2 Wouldn\'t shut off, now it won\'t crank!
I have an '83 K-30 with a 6.2 that would not shut off the other night. I pulled the key, wiggled it back and forth and even hit the starter once, but it just kept running. After about a minute it finally shut off, but now the thing won't crank. I can hear the starter relay kick on sometimes and the glowplugs light up every time I turn the key on. I just bought the truck and it is my first Diesel. Not really sure what is used to shut the engine off (solenoid in fuel line??) and not sure how it would be related to the engine not cranking. My first guess was the ignition switch, I pulled it out and checked the contacts, they seem fine. Any suggestions would be appreciated, my email is [email protected]
