Solenoid is bad. Depending on your skills, you can remove starter and replace solenoid. If you are not comfortable with this then just remove starter and replace it. Be aware there is a core charge for the starter when you buy new one so I would suggest removing old one and taking it with you to parts store, that way you won't have core charge and you can compare the two too ensure you have the right one.

What couse the STARTER TO STAY ENGAGED


You don't say whether the starter is continuously cranking the engine or just spinning continuously or whether after starting the engine the starter switches off but remains engaged? Lack of detail makes it difficult to give anything but a general answer.

Certainly the starter should be removed and checked for damage and correct operation. The pinion might be tight on the helix, the solenoid could be tight, the return spring broken or the arm pivot seized. If the starter has been engaged while the engine has run at speed or for more than a few minutes the overrun clutch should be replaced.

In any case where the starter has remained engaged the ignition/starter switch and the drive mechanism in the steering column lock should be inspected for correct operation.

Either the solenoid is getting power when it should not be, or the starter drive is not aligned with the flywheel.

03 Oldsmobile Silhouette 3.4L Starter stays engaged at times.


Sounds like time for a new starter. While it could be electrical, in that the starter circuit is remaining engaged, more than likely it is mechanical. As the starter wears, you get play in the starter gear. Replacing the starter should take care of it. If you have recently had the starter off or replaced it, it could be misaligned, causing a similar problem.

F 150 starts and starter stays engaged unplug alternator starts ok but no charge


2 problems, first you have bad starter or starter relay for starter staying engaged, keep alt plugged in has nothing to do with starter staying engauged, to test starter relay, jump at relay bat + post with red/bk wire on solonoid, if cranks over without staying engaged, then not relay or starter but rather in your ign switch, ford had bad problems with ign switch some years ago doing that

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.
