Truck starts but you release key it diesnot activating the run circuit ,new switch new starter as we ruined the other starter holding key


BBB Industries have online wiring diagrams under Technical. Trace that run wire and check its connections/connectors for breakage or corrosion . It is possible to get a fluke switch, so keep that in mind also .

Starter staying engaged and running with key off


This is usually due to one of two things:

  1. The solenoid spring in the starter is broken, not retracting the starter gear when the key is released.
  2. The starter gear is binding in the flywheel (flex plate) and not releasing after releasing the key.

When i turn key on my 2007 chrysler sebring the starter gets stuck and keeps trying to start even when releasing key have to turn off and remove key to stop starter


there are a few things that will cause this problem 1 is a stuck solenoid, 2 starter drive pinion stuck in the ring gear or flywheel. 3 ignition switch is shorted internally. I would try tapping the starter motor with a hammer or steel bar then turning the key to the on position... If the problem is gone replace the solenoid.

How do you replace an ignition switch in a Lincoln Navigator?


Don't believe it would be the ignition switch. It sounds like the starter relay may be stuck in the on position. Find the starter relay and pull it out. One terminal would be hot at all times-use a test light grounded to engine block and probe the relay terminals. Should only have one terminal showing power. Now have someone hold the key in start position. Now you should have two terminals showing power, and when key is released to the run position, the second hot terminal should stop showing power.
If it works like this, try a new relay, or a known good one. If second terminal still shows power without key being in start (cranking) position, then it may be the ignition switch or the wiring and connections between the switch and the starter relay.
You will keep burning starters out till fixed. Starters that are run more than a few seconds at a time will get too hot and burn out.

You will need to replace the starter and or solenoid as the starter drive is not disengaging the starter gear and power is constantly being fed to the solenoid. Don't drive the vehicle this way as the starter drive will burn up and possibly strip the starter gear which is a much more major problem to fix.

After releasing the ignition key the car will not stay running?no check engine lights on to verify a problem..


It can be short in the ignition switch connection causing this problem.Get the ignition switch and its connection checked and confirmed.Also check the starter connections.May also be a mix up in the starter wiring? Run a temporary wire from the battery to the plus side of the coil then start the car and let go the key. If it keeps running it is either the starter or a wire open or crossed. Also it can be the ignition key switch. Any way you need to check that you have continuity to the coil with the key in the on position. You can use voltmeter to check the continuity.y in the on position. ---------That's it.

Ford f250 Truck 1987 460. Solenoid sticks once in a while.Starter keeps running until you tap solenoid.Replaced it 3 times.With new part starts fine 2 -3 times then starts sticking again every time.Put the...


Most likely you need a new Ignition switch. The small "tickler" wires on your solenoid are staying on. You can disconnect the small wire from the Solenoid and then put a test light on it. Turn the Ignition to Start and see if the wire stays hot when you release the key.

Another problem you could have is the Starter has such a bad intermittent short in it, that it keeps the points welded together after the key is released from the Start position. You can get a starter Draw test done at some parts stores like Autozone or Oreillys to name a few, they do it free and on the truck.

Let me know the result please,

Starts, then quits after 2 or 3 seconds


If the engine keeps running when the starter is kept engage, it is an ignition switch problem but in this case it looks to me as an ECM problem.

Starter continues turning after I release the key.87 monte carlo


Hi, Check and make sure the starter relay is not sticking. If it is not, then the bendix in the starter is probably bad or not shimmed properly. You can check the starter when you remove it, be careful of the torque. Good Luck to you. Hope this Fixsya!

My car wont stay running


Does the engine die as soon as you release the key, or does it run for a couple of seconds after you release the key and then die? If it dies as soon as you release the key, try holding the key for a few seconds and see if it will stay running as long as you are holding the key (the starter will make a grinding sound while holding the key but won't hurt anything). If it stays running while you hold the key then dies when you release it, that indicates that the ignition switch is bad.
