You most likely have a faulty ignition/start switch (or a faulty start slave relay if fitted).
Don't run the motor for too long while the starter is engaged, as it will damage the starter motor.

The starter motor continues to run when the car is running on a 1999 Buick century


The Starter motor can keep running because of a number of things. It receives its power from the large contacts (switch) in the starter solenoid. WHen engaged, this starter sol. allows high current 12 volts to run the starter motor.
A number of things can cause the starter solenoid to stay engaged:
A) stuck starter solenoid mechanicals. probably not the cause
B) more likely a defective start position on the ignition switch in the ignition switch
C) possibly a gummed up ignition key tumbler
I would start troubleshooting with a schematic. Make your own or purchase a service manual. IF you pull off the wire from the switch (in the center console) which actuates the starter solenoid, and the starter motor continues to run, then its not the switch or the key tumbler. its the solenoid.
Troubleshooting is the logical process of elimination.

Replaced starter still not starting cleaned ground under battery please help


Depending on what vehicle you have, verify that your starter is getting 12 volts when the key is turned to Start. If no voltage is present, you may have a bad Starter Relay, Starter Solenoid, Ignition Switch, or Clutch Safety Switch.

  1. Check that your starter is getting 12 volts when the key is turned to Start.
  2. Check the Starter Relay to see if it clicks.
  3. Check the Ignition Switch for Continuity.
  4. Check the Clutch Safety Switch for Continuity.

I have a 2003 1500 Chevy silverado.The starter continues to run after the key is released. I had replaced the starter, and a note with the starter stated this. The PCM controls the starter relay on input...


You need to replace the relay or the ignition switch,check for power to the relay in the crank position,[pin 85 or 86] in the plug the relay was taken out of to see if the power to the relay goes away as soon as it is in the run position.If so replace the relay,if not,replace the ignition switch[not the key switch the switch the key switch turns].

As soon as I turn the key to the on position, the engine turns over


The problem is either in the mechanism that pushes the rod that activates the ignition switch from the key lock cylinder, or the ignition switch is defective.

Starts but quits as soon as key returns to run position.


My bet is that you have an open the fuel pump run circuit or the vacuum switch. Most GMs have a vacuum switch to 'see' the engine running and reduce pressure by cutting voltage. However, if your car has a turbo or supercharger, they use a relay that 'flips' to a resistive line which then cuts the power level to the pump. Get a good model-specific diagram and check it out.
