SOURCE: starter stays engaged,even after ignition

Just to clarify, I also have an 86 F150 standard exhibiting what sounds like the same problem. On my unit, power is still applied to the starter motor with the switch turned off. I'm reasonably sure that there is not a shorted wire.
????Is the starter switch on F150's spring loaded or solidly controlled by a rod?????
I am suspecting that it is spring loaded and the old grease and dirt is causing the switch to stick in the engaged position.
Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: starter stays engaged once in a while on my f-250 7.3 liter diese

It sounds like a sticky bendix on te starter. Take the starter off and clean the bendix with electical spary work the bendix back and forth while spaying with the cleaner. Make sure there is tention in the bendix when you push it ahead it should want to go back.

The starter motor continues to run when the car is running on a 1999 Buick century


The Starter motor can keep running because of a number of things. It receives its power from the large contacts (switch) in the starter solenoid. WHen engaged, this starter sol. allows high current 12 volts to run the starter motor.
A number of things can cause the starter solenoid to stay engaged:
A) stuck starter solenoid mechanicals. probably not the cause
B) more likely a defective start position on the ignition switch in the ignition switch
C) possibly a gummed up ignition key tumbler
I would start troubleshooting with a schematic. Make your own or purchase a service manual. IF you pull off the wire from the switch (in the center console) which actuates the starter solenoid, and the starter motor continues to run, then its not the switch or the key tumbler. its the solenoid.
Troubleshooting is the logical process of elimination.

Starter staying engaged after starting on 2005 malibu ls


check to engagement wire at the starter, make sure that power is only present when key is in the start position.if this is the case, then your sarter bendix is hanging up on the flywheel, this is caused by either inproper shiming where the starter is bolted to the block, or having the wrong bendix on the starter, there or several different bendix s general motors uses, also if the return spring in the solonoid is broken or not strong enough the starter could hang up. if the problem is power continuing to feed the solonoid with the key in the run position you could have a bad or out of adjustment ignition switch, since the power feeds the solonoid directly from the ignition switch, other than the neutral switch on the colomn

My car wants to keep starting even after turning the key off


solenoid may be sticking. Have someone start the car, if it sticks tap the solenoid with screw driver handle. If that stops the starter, replace the solenoid. If it were me, I wouldn't bother testing it and just replace solenoid.

Engaging the Starter


Check to make sure that when you turn on ignition switch the solenoid is receiving power to engage the pinion gear and feed power to the starter motor. It is new so I suspect it is not receiving juice. U may have some bad connection causing the intermittent issue. PIA.

It's not a toyota tacoma it's a 90 Lexus ls400


Your starter drive is staying engaged. Either the starter has failed, or your ignition switch is keeping the starter engaged. Try moving the key back from "start" while the noise is occurring. More than likely, the starter is the culprit.
