Check the ignition switch as it may be keeping the starter circuit engaged after it is released back to run position

Its auto start. Colorados hummer h3 and several g.m. products are like that.
Now if starter doesn't disengage after engine starts thats completely different.
That could be your starter relay.
Ive never run across that problem.

Why do my stater stay engaged in my 2010 equinox about every 3 th day. I turn my ignition off & than when I turn it on again it works right. I replaced the starter but the same problem


you may need to shim that starter due to wear on the engine... ask your parts dealer if he knows about the issue and he will have the part you need.

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.

Atos ignition problems and screeching


If you hear a click under the hood from the starter the starter solenoid but starter is defective and you should rebuild it. If that is not the case I would replace the ignition starter switch, this is the electrical switch the key cylinder actuates to turn on the electrical system and engage the starter.

My car wants to keep starting even after turning the key off


solenoid may be sticking. Have someone start the car, if it sticks tap the solenoid with screw driver handle. If that stops the starter, replace the solenoid. If it were me, I wouldn't bother testing it and just replace solenoid.

Turn key and starter stays engaged. Turn key off


The starter solenoid is failing. Sooner or later the starter will probably not disengage after you turn the key off. Then you'll have to disconnect the battery in a hurry. It's no fun. And at that point the whole starter will probably have to be replaced. Depending on how long it takes you to unhook the battery. Trust me. That is no way to start your day. It's really bad for your blood pressure. Good Luck.

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.

Ignition problem with 95 carmy


Seems to be a problem with the solenoid on the starter. After the engine starts, and you let the key go to the "run" position, the solenoid is supposed to disengage. If it stays engaged, it keeps the battery to starter contacts engaged. You have to remove the starter to get to the solenoid -- usually it is best to replace both the starter and the solenoid as a unit.

If that starter is damaged then replace it and make sure that you shim the starter correctly or it will bind the gears and do the same thing again.
