Did you replace the ignition switch? because if so you may have got the gears a couple of teeth off and your switch is in the crank position all the time no matter what the lock cylinder is pointing at.

Sounds to me like a stuck solenoid.

Because the ignition switch wire (small purple wire) or connector is touching the hot post on the starter.So when you connect the battery it just like turning the ignition key to start the engine. Make sure all the wires on the starter are not touching each other.

Not the Key but the ignition itself. Replace teh ignition module where the key is inserted to start the vehicle and that should resolve the issue.

Replaced starter on '99 Yukon. When reconnected


I can't say for sure but it sound like you either trigger the "Panic" button or alarm system if equiped. Hook the battery up (negative last) and push the "Panic" button on the key FOB.
If you don't have the FOB you may be able to reset but disconnecting the negative cable only.
If it's an alarm system, locking and then unlocking with the FOB should reset it, also using the key to turn on the ignition is supposed to reset it.

MOTOR OPERTAES WITHOUT KEY


your starter,solenoid or ignition is no good. but my first choice,i think your solenoid is shorted because when you hook up the battery,it cranks but does not start.that means your ignition switch is still working.
