front and rear parking sensors
heated leather electric seats
electric folding mirrors

the car keeps activating the starter motor whilst im driving and the thing dont shut off the first time it happend my car nearly set on fire the second time left me stranded in the middle of no where with a burnt out starter motor.

Sounds like the signal line (terminal 50) may be shorting. Get wiring checked.
