Had same problem. Have to lift the car so you can crawl under the engine. Just to the rear of the engine from underneath you will find the main lead connected to the starter, remove the rubber cover and undo the nut and clean the connector and terminal with some emery paper and replace then smear some grease on. This worked a treat on my sedona

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.

STARTER MOTOR ENGAGING ALL THE TIME


I would suspect the ignition switch. Power has to be getting to the starter solenoid to activate it. See if you can disconnect the power going into the switch, If the problem stops,.... solved. If problem persists, look for loose wire that could be shorting at the solenoid.

What would make the starter engage when the key out of the ignition


Your problem seems to be a faulty solenoid. The solenoid is a little monster that lives on top of the starter motor, and its job is twofold. Firstly, it supplies full battery power to the starter motor, and secondly it drives a gear on the starter to engage with the engine flywheel.
Now, your problem. The first guess could be the ignition switch, but fitting a toggle seems like a fairy tale answer. Check the starter solenoid to see if there is a frayed wire on the thin wire that connects to the starter, or possibly a frayed wire on the battery cable that is shorting to the small connector. Otherwise, I have seen the terminal of this small wire actually become loose and turn in the direction of the battery cable, which is also connected to the solenoid. A short here will cause the problem you are describing.
Finally, the solenoid could have a short circuit inside the body, which means replace the solenoid.

How to check a starter on a 1988 mighty max


Turn on your headlights so you can see their reflection (garage door or wall) Engage starter. If the head lites go out or dim the motor is drawing power from the battery. If the motor won't spin then look for a weak battery, bad battery cables (check both of them), bad ground strap between the frame and the engine, and lastly check the motor for high temperature. If the head lites do not dim when trying to engage the starter then look at the solenoid that applies power to the motor. Don't ignore the ignition switch either.

2000 audi s3 is noisy on ignition but settles quickly


when you turn your key and you only hear humming noise, the problem will most likely be that the starter is not engaging the fly wheel, its turning but is not sliding forward to do its job. have the starter check. and after some time it any how gets engaged and the noise settles down. also get the ignition switch and ignition module checked. ---------- This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution if helped.thank you for using fixya.

By pass ignition switch


If your ignition switch is bad in your steering column, and the starter does not engage when the key is turned forward, then this is a quick fix for you.
BE SURE THE BATTERY IS DISCONECTED BEFORE YOU START WIRING. You can run some heave gauge (18 plus, and about 12 feet of it) wire to the top mount and the rear mount on the starter solenoid (one end of the wire to each, making a loop) Run the wire into the interior of the truck, and then install a toggle switch in the loop of wire. You will still have to turn on the key to engage the motor, but it will not start until you flip the toggle. That should get you by until you can replace the ignition switch in the column.

When starting 1997 aspire in morning-delay in starting


Starter solenoid probably.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sequence of Operation

NOTE: An overrunning clutch in the drive assembly protects the starter motor (11002) from excessive speeds during the brief period before the driver releases the ignition switch (11572) from the START position (as the engine (6007) starts).

  1. The ignition switch is turned to the START position.
  1. The starter solenoid (11390) is energized, creating a magnetic field in the solenoid coil.
  1. The iron plunger core is drawn into the solenoid coil.
  1. A drive lever and pin (11067) connected to the drive assembly engages the starter drive (11350) to the flywheel ring gear.
  1. When the iron plunger core is all the way into the coil, its contact disc closes the circuit between the battery (10655) and the starter motor terminals.
  1. The current flows to the starter motor, and the starter drive cranks the flywheel (6375) and the crankshaft (6303).
  1. As current flows to the starter motor, the pull-in coil is bypassed.
  1. The hold-in coil keeps the starter drive engaged with the flywheel.
  1. The starter drive remains engaged until the ignition switch is released from the START position.

It's not a toyota tacoma it's a 90 Lexus ls400


Your starter drive is staying engaged. Either the starter has failed, or your ignition switch is keeping the starter engaged. Try moving the key back from "start" while the noise is occurring. More than likely, the starter is the culprit.
