Check the wires on starter solenoid to make sure they are in the right spot. Sounds like the ignition wire terminal on the solenoid is getting constant power. I hope this helps!

1995 GMC K2500 Suburban, engine wont start, it will click, not a battery problem, lights, windows, windshield wipers will all work when ignition is in off position. Wouldn't start last night, fired right...

Sounds like the starter solenoid or the starter itself - probably needs replacing but check the wiring at the starter first (loose connection, frayed wires, etc.).

Put new starter in, now when i reconnect the negative cable the car tries to start without turning the key. help

Disconnect the small terminal to the starter solenoid and reconnect the main battery cable, if the starter still tries to engage then you have a faulty starter solenoid and should take the starter back to where you brought it. Ask them to test/repair the starter and after it is repaired or replaced you shouldn't have that problem again.

If you installed a new starter and your getting battery volts at the starter wire on the soleniod switch while trying to start the engine, then you bought a bad starter, Good luck, Gary

1993 suburban won't crank when hot

There are quite a few things to check, start with checking fuel and spark. One or the other isn't working at the time of NO START. Things to check: ECT sensor(engine coolant temp.), TP sensor(throttle positioning), fuel pump and relay (), spark-plugs, wires, cap&rotor, air&fuel filter, PCV, ignition control module (can be tested for free at AUTO-ZONE or most other part stores), IAC (idle control valve), no crank signal (defective ignition switch), or PROM. I think that with all the extra cranking something else is bad now. Check the battery, should have 12.5 volts (cold), the fuse, connections, and bench test the new starter, it might be defective. Hope this helps you, if you have any other questions, please ask away.

1995 suburban 2500, battery problems, everything shuts down

With a test light, check for power at the starter main cable, have your helper try the starter. If the light goes out, check the connections. Plus all the ground cables, not just the one on the battery.
If the stays on, then replace the solenoid. Frankster016
