Define monentarily. How long is a moment ?
Do you mean just press start button and release immediately regardless of what else is going on ?

If so I will try that. Sounds more like a toggle switch action than something that would replicate the turn of a key untill you hear the engine turn over.

Am I understanding you correctly?

It should work just like your computer. A momentary touch is all it takes. And just like the computer, holding the button down for several seconds forces an immediate power down.

Agreed. I push the Start button and release it immediately. The engine will crank and start on its own without you needing to keep your finger on the button.

Eureka. LOL I am here in Greece now, and you guys were correct. I just push and release the button, to start the engine like turning on a computer.

I have not had the time to examine the other noises it was making that were related to the wheel lock but I will look them over and no doubt you guys were correct in that regard also.

Have a lot of things to take care of, but cant wait to get my Baby on the highway

The electric steering wheel lock makes a "grinding" sort of noise when you press the stop engine button. Sometimes it is louder depending on the attitude of the steering wheel.

Bravo. If you look at my post #5 you will see that is how I refer to the sound I heard.

I have noticed this same sound & it sounds like a 'screeching' to me at very cold temps. I'm thinking I may have a weakening soleniod motor.
