Check the battery is fully charged, clean the battery posts and terminals, with a volt meter check for battery voltage on the battery side of the starter solenoid , if ok check for battery voltage on starter side of solenoid while starter engaged , if no voltage replace solenoid, if voltage fault in starter motor.
It sounds like you have a bad actuator. This is attached to the starter and has a solonoid that pushes the starter motor gears into the engine gear. If the solonoid is faulty this may happen. Also check alignment of the same.
You most likely have a short in the wiring to the starter.
Last time I saw something like that a vehicle's exhaust headers created heat which eventually melted the wire's insulation and several of the wires were exposed and shorting on each other and the ground of the vehicle. If possible, get the car on a lift and inspect your starters wiring....
it sounds like the starter solenoid contacts are not separating to stop the starter from turning.the run on is due to the starter not stopping causing the motor to continue to spin.replace the starter unit as it will have damage due to being engaged with the motor running,also have the flywheel inspected to make sure the teeth are not damaged on it.
The starter solenoid is failing. Sooner or later the starter will probably not disengage after you turn the key off. Then you'll have to disconnect the battery in a hurry. It's no fun. And at that point the whole starter will probably have to be replaced. Depending on how long it takes you to unhook the battery. Trust me. That is no way to start your day. It's really bad for your blood pressure. Good Luck.
there is a solinoid that enguages the starter it is stuck tap the round cylinder that is atached to the top of the starter it should disenguage the solinoid if not try to hit it harder. dont beat it up though. it also may need a new starter.
make sure you have power to the b+ terminal of starter. Also make sure you got power to the ignition terminal on starter with key in the crank possition. With key in the crank possition check that power is being tranfered from solenoid to motor. If all these check ok replace starter. If no power in the ign(small gage wire on starter) possible ignition switch or p/n safety switch. If no powere on B+ check battery, battery cablem fusible link.
you can but is tricky depending on how easy the starter is to get at.
take your ground cable and hook it to the frame somewhere it will make good contact and touch the possitive cable to the big wire on the starter keep in mind that it will turn over as soon as you touch the big wire on the stater,so turn your ignition key to run and make sure it is in neutral if it's a standard
try resetting the computer with three separate ignition turns, yet dont actually engage the starter motor. just click the ignition to where it lights up your dash gauges, then click back to the off possition. try this three times
