The rewind mechanism is bad---I would take it to an expert and have it repaired or on a unit of this age replaced.

first i would recheck all of the connections to see if they are all tight including the ones for the starter..than make sure that the battery is fully charged. and make sure that the battery has enough cold cranking amps for your vehical . than if that still doesnt work than i would take the starter to a autozone they will test it for free.

Replace the starter you will or have damaged the starter drive and could ruin the teeth on the fly wheel. The spring has gone bad in the solinoid or the shaft thats is activated magnetically is dirty and sticking, ther could be a problem with the starter switch but that is less likely than the solinoid.

Hi, the best way to find the problem is to interrogate the starter relay socket. You will need a 12 volt test light to do this. The starter relay is in the fuse box under the hood. Pull the relay out, connect your test light clip to chassis ground and probe the terminals in the relay socket. With the key off, there should be one terminal that lights the test light. If not, check the 30 amp starter fuse in the same box. If yes, turn the key to start and probe the terminals again. There should be another terminal that lights the light. If not, check the 10 amp PCM fuse in the same box. If this fuse is good, but still no test light, suspect the ignition switch. If you get both test lights on when the switch is turned to start, move your test light clip to battery positive and probe the other two terminals. One of these terminals goes to the starter solenoid and should light the test light dimly. If not, the wire is broken somewhere. The other terminal should light the light brightly when the key is turned to start--this is the PCM start signal, which is ground whenever the passlock system is not activated and the transmission is in park or neutral. If you do not get this light, suspect your passlock system is not seeing a factory key in the ignition switch or the park/neutral switch may be broken. If passlock is activated, there should be a security light on the dash or a red light blinking.
Please check the fuses first and let me know the results of your tests or, if you don't have a test light or voltmeter, I can provide some less effective troubleshooting steps.

Do you have the correct starter and is it grinding, this sounds like a bad flywheel or wrong starter or even a bad one. look at teeth of flywheel and see if they are damaged. good day
