thats weird... usually they don't start! You have one that won't shut off... I guess it will be warm anytime you need it. hehe...

That is really strange, check everywhere under the hood, around the engine and under the dash first to be sure nothing came loose. Also make sure there isn't any water getting into the fuse panel or anything where it could bridge a connection.

Is it running normal or does it sound like its about to idle out and die?
