Why will the starter continue to crank, even with the ignition in the off position and the key completely removed?

    But how can the starter be stuck if the ignition is in the off position.....isn't this suppose to kill all the power to the starter....do you think maybe is the relay or something else getting stuck?

    The starter solenoid is kinda like a relay.Has two wires that go to it, one in from the ignition switch and one is from the battery always has voltage.If the contacts in the solenoid stay in the close position it will get it's voltage from the battery and will keep the starter engage in the on position.That's why went you unplug the battery it stops.

The Starter wil need to be replaced. The solenoid was stuck. Unless you can find a Starter/Alt shop that can replace the contacts for you and check out why it stuck on.

How do I fix a check engine light code 300, 301, and 302 on a 2000 Toyota Avalon XLS?


Not spark plugs

It is an ignition problem or many other things,
that can cause a misfire

Google your OBD Codes & see what causes them

Really need vehicle experience & professional test equip,
to look at vehicle data & be able to component test

Changing out good parts, won't help you find anything

2000 Toyota Avalon XLS intermittent starting problem


If the car does not crank at all then the anomaly could lie with the starter motor. These suckers have carbon brushes that over time will wear. Usually there are springs that keep pushing the brush onto the commutator but it is possible that the brushes are so worn that the springs have reached the max on their spring and the brushes make intermittent contact at times. That explains why it is dead sometimes and starts after you jostle the unit.

Or if you have an auto transmission you can also check out the switch that is part of your transmission that prevents car from starting unless it is in neutral. The neutral safety switch. If the latter is bogus you can either replace it or just bypass it and save the dinero.

Avalon is a great running car and ................
