I think I had this same thing happen, though not sure if the cable broke, or simply the piece (?) which secures in into the dash. Pulled out fine upon startup (or so I thought), however, when I went to push it back in to shut the car down, it would not correctly push back in. I couldn't figure out how the heck I was going to get the car to shut off? Finally, in a fit or rage (panic) I hit in good and hard and the car finally shut off.
Does that sound similar? I wonder if this too could be a broken cable, or some other piece of the pull starter?
