Hi bucketsr

Check your ignition line from the replacement switch and make sure that you're getting power when it should come...The connections may be different from the original....check the cables too...look for a short which could have caused the original problem....If all these are ok, you may have a problem with an encoded key system, in which case you'll need to get it re-encoded at a dealer...

Good luck and best wishes Johngee10

When i turn key off it continues to try and start and eventually runs battery down


Jeffs solution (above) is for a different problem. If the Starter Motor continues to turn with the Ign. Sw. off, yours won't be a Starter Motor problem. However, the most likely cause is either the wire to the Starter Solinoid or the Solinoid itself.

I can't see the alternator being the cause either, as suggested above.
.
Try this
Disconnect the thin wire from the Solinoid (this is the one that activates the Starter when you turn the key).
With the battery charged, the Starter shouldn't work. Put the wire back and try again. If the same problem is there, quickly remove the wire.
One of 2 things will happen:-
1: The Starter will stop. The cause is in the wire to the Ign. Sw. or the Ign. Sw.
2: The Starter will continue turning. Repair or replace the Solinoid.

Fist of all the ignition switch tuns with out key its been laid up seveveral years.had to jump solinoid to get engine to run .so i replaed solinoid nowwhen you turn the key nothing happens youneed to jump...


As the car has been laid up many years, it needs a thorough servicing. Besides a solenoid in the starter motor, there is a bendex as well. Its role is to push the starter pinion forwards to enable it to engage the flywheel when you turn the key. And when the key is turned backwards then this pinion is pulled backwards. This goes bad sometimes as most of the things do. So it should be repaired. Then the starter motor will start functioning as it should.

I replaced the starter on a 1999 Chev Cavilier but when I went to start the car the starter kept trying to start the car even though the car was already running. I think i may have crossed one or a couple...


hi, i think you have put the MAIN HEAVY CABLE direct to the STARTER MOTOR on the SOLINOID. this will keep the starter motor running. take battery lead NEGATIVE CABLE OFF the BATTERY, and change the MAIN HEAVY CABLE from the SOLINOID terminal to the other MAIN terminal on the SOLINOID and NORMALLY it SHOULD go with a SLIGHTY (smaller cable this GO'S to the FUSEBOX rest of car POSITIVE FEED). the other small wire is the solinoid START WIRE. the solinoid has 2 circuits the first circuit is HEAVY BATTERY LEAD to 1 terminal on the solinoid. the other side of the solinoid HEAVY CABLE to STARTER MOTOR. this is only 1 side of the SOLINOID (THIS IS A VERY VERY HEAVY SWITCH). the other side of the SOLINOID is the START SIDE (REMOTE CONTACT) of the SOLINOID, by turning the IGNITION KEY to STARTER POSITION, this operates the SOLINOID. this makes contact to run the starter motor. once the connections are done REPLACE NAGATIVE BATTERY LEAD and start the car. gerry

My 1989 ecoline 150 starter fires when u connect the batteryreplaced starter solinoid and ignition switch and keyswitch still starts no key and will still run after van starts


look for shorted wires leading from your starter solenoid to your ignition switch.
the wires are shorted "on" before they get to your ignition switch.
separate the burned/shorted wires: (most likely under the dash) then tape them so they don't touch.

Ignition will not turn off the van, key out of van, van still on


it sounds like the small arm inside the steering colunm has broken. on my windstar it was actually two pieces. if you do not have tilt steering the job to replace it isn't too bad tho you have to pull the steering wheel and remove the lock cylinder. to test if this is correct you would need to pull the ignition switch... it's under the steering column. there is a pin on it that fits into the arms that come down from the ignition switch. remove the ignition switch and turn the key while looking up into the hole where the small arm is. if it doesn't move it is broken.

for the immediate problem just either pull the fuse for ignition or remove the breather snorkel that attaches to the throttle body and block it off with your hand.

Need to change the ignition switch


Remove panel under steering wheel. Put key in cylinder and turn back to accessory position. Looking under lower part of steering column locate a small pin under the key cylinder. While depressing the pin turn the key backwards and pull the entire cylinder with key out of column. Good luck.
