i've experienced a similiar occurance with my G6 GT. doesn't happen very often.
when it does, its like the soleniod on the starter 'hangs up' and the starter stays engaged. i believe its something in the ignition switch or, possibly, the starter but wouldn't rule out a 'control unit' of some sort. i have read previous posts on this and figured theres no rush to run to my dealer if they are going to tell me its common for this engine to do that. my question is; "Whats the design of the engine got to do with the starter remaining engaged while starting?" sometimes i wonder what these people are thinking, you know? but i'm under warranty for some time yet, so we'll see.
if i were you, my main concern would NOT the damage to the starter,as it can be easily replaced. my concern would be any potential damage to the FLYWHEEL as this might not show up for thousands of miles AFTER you're out of warranty!!!!
but in my circumstance, i was't using the remote, just my key. even though i have the remote start, i have yet to use it. now that its cold, i may use it at work to warm up the car, but it sits in the garage at home, so no good there.
let us know exactly what your Repair Order stated as the repair, as i'm sure a few of us would be interested as well. they said they were replacing the 'Computer Module', but which one? i work at a Mopar dealership and these vehicles have many 'Computer Modules' on them. if you don't have a better description, maybe you can give us the Part Number?
thanks and good luck with the repairs.......
