Mein Auto: 1982 320i E21
Unhappy FIXED: Help! Whirring sound and I can't turn off the car!

I looked around and couldn't find another post with the same problem.

I have a 1982 320i E21, and when I went out to start it, it turned over once but didn't start. So I turned the key again and a loud whirring sound came on and now won't stop! I had to disconnect a battery lead to turn it off. When I reattach the lead, the whirring starts again.

Any ideas what might be the problem? Is there a way to reset whatever is whirring??

Many thanks in advance! This forum has been a big help for some other issues I've had.
