2000 chevy s10 starting problem

Hi i have a 2000 chevy s10 and I am haveing a problem with the starter staying engaged. Even when I turn the truck off and take the key out the starter will not stop. The motor shuts off but the starter stays on the only way I can get it to stop is to disconnect the battery.I am thinking it is the ignition switch can anyone help.

There is a solinoid that enguages the starter it is stuck tap the round cylinder that is atached to the top of the starter it should disenguage the solinoid if not try to hit it harder. dont beat it up though. it also may need a new starter.

My 2000 S10 will not crank,it has new battery & alternator,when the ignition is turned on I get all dash lights but won't turn over. The light around the odometer dims when I engage the key.


You need to test the start wire at the starter when the key is turned to crank position to make sure it has power during cranking. Sometimes tapping on the starter motor with a hammer while cranking will engage a bad starter motor

All acc power stays on and starter wont stop turning over when battery is connected in my 1997 chevy blazer


I would take a look at the wires down at the starter. He may have the large positive wire shorting to the smaller, trigger, wire. This could potentially cause a back-feed through the whole system.

2000 Chevy s10 manual changed starter still won't start the starter is spinning but the engine won't turn over.


Do you have the correct starter and is it grinding, this sounds like a bad flywheel or wrong starter or even a bad one. look at teeth of flywheel and see if they are damaged. good day

2000 chevy impala, starter spins but does not engage


if the starter spins but does not engage flywheel. then its the starter solinoid thats bad. its on top of starter, when key is turned to start, the solinoid is activated, and it pushes the gears out to make contact with flywheel to start vehicle. so the solinoid just spins with out kicking out to flywheel. change solinoid or get another starter. have a good day !

It is so confusing though I had a go at one sometime and it took a whole lot out of us before we realised that it needed a touch from Chevy garage.

Please visit the Chevy Garage it won't cost you much to fix.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

2000 Chevy s10 starting problem


Check the ignition and Engine relay switches located under the hood. Sometimes relays go weak with age and even a bump on the road will shut them off. If you can turn the truck on, take it to Autozone or similar store for a free DTC scan code.

Installed a new stater, battery and alt or fine, car makes a clunck sometimes b4 starting


The ignition coil can't do what you describe.

It almost sounds as if you have some broken teeth on the flywheel that the starter engages.

I would remove the starter, loosen or remove the spark plugs to relieve compression, then have someone turn the engine byhand while peering into the bellhousing with a flashlight where the starter mounts and inspect the flywheel for damage.

With a tooth (or more) worn or broken off, when the Bendix throws the starter gear forward, it may be landing on top of a broken tooth, slipping off, then turning your engine over.
There may be enough tooth even if broken, to stay engaged once the starter has meshed.
