What is causing my starter to engage while the motor is running and won't quit until you unhook the battery?


Ouch! Sounds like the Bendix on the starter motor could have been damaged, or possibly the starter relay. I'd check the relay first. With ignition and engine off. pull the small terminal on the relay terminal Labeled "S" for start. It is next to the Battery terminal. (See enlarged pix on the link below.) Next, try to start the engine. It should not even try. Then, reconnect the starter wire to the relay. Have a friend start the engine and then pull the wire from the "S" terminal. If pulling the wire kills he engine, the you probably have a bad ignition switch. If the starter motor is still engaged with engine running, then I'd suspect a stuck relay or stuck Bendix. Since the relay is the cheaper component of the two (10 to 25 bucks), I'd change the relay. If the relay doesn't remedy the situation, It's time to replace the starter/Bandix.

I replaced the starter and I hooked it up the same way as the instructions said..but when I hooked up the battery the starter stays on a wont shut off and the only way to stop it is to unhook the battery...


Somehow you bypassed the solenoid switch which normally turns on the starter. I assume the starter came with a new solinoid?
Unlikely but solenoid may have been wired internally wrong, or you have the wrong starter. Double check your connections to the solinoid.

Install starter in 1990 ford ranger


follow battery cable (red) to solenoid on fender, then follow the wires down to starter. unhook battery cable and unhook wires to starter. will require jacking the truck up. slide the starter out from the flywheel once the bolts are removed. then slide new one in and hook everything up in reverse order.

2005 gmc savanna 1500 starting problem changed starter and battery but when I hook up the battery charger and turn it to start boost it starts turn it off unhook charger it wont start


You have the solenoid exciter wire touch the bat terminal on the starter. You need to loosen the cable stud and turn and make sure it is not hitting the smaller terminal. the small wire should be going to the S post or terminal

Trucks been rolled , now won't crank


Try this.
Take a positive battery jumper cable and hook it directly to the big lug terminal on the starter solenoid that the cable hooks to from the battery.
Take the negative jumper cable and hook it to a good steel, iron, or aluminum ground connection right by the starter, on the motor.
Now try the key to start it.
If it still says nothing, I'm thinking you have some wire harnesses unhooked from the rollover.
Someone really good could take a little jumper wire and connect the tiny terminal on the starter solenoid (which goes to the key switch), to the positive battery cable, and that should make the starter work, hopefully.
If it cranks with this direct application of power to the starter, be sure and check the "ground straps" between the motor and the frame. I think there are about 3 or 4.
Some may have snapped.
Be blessed.

Starter spins when battery is hooked up even when key is not turned to on


Either the solenoid on the starter failed, or one of the wires is on the wrong terminal.

Replaced fender silenoid and ignition switch under dash. Even after unhooking all terminals from starter, the positive cable from battery is bubbling hot. There is a faint clicking coming from under...


Tough one. First thing I would do is replace your cables, signal wire from ignition switch to solenoid included. Sounds like a short somewhere.

1997 dodge caravan 3.3L Won't Start.


clean both cables including ground. does it dim any of the lights or do they go out when you turn key to start? make sure all connections are clean and tight and that includes hot cable on starter, and the small wire on starter. if your sure everything is clean and tight. You can try this if you know how, you can chk. starter with a screw driver by crossing the big post to small post on starter but you got to be real careful as not to weld the screw driver to the posts as your are by passing the key and comeing strate from battery, if it turns starter there, then most likely not starter, if you got acess to an external starter switch it would be safer. if that all chks. out then most likely its the starter switch under dash on steering colume. starter is not a big thing to chg. just make sure you unhook battery before you take it off.
