I have a 1997 sw2 1.9l dohc. I just installed a new

I have a 97 sw2 1.9l dohc. I just installed a new starter and it cranked fine we took it for a test drive got back and tried starting the car a few more times. It worked for about three times ten suddenly it just quit working. After we got out of the car we heard the starter still running. We had to disconnect the battery. We checked the wires and they look fine. Tried to hook the battery back up and the negative cable arced so bad it melted a chunk out of the lead. I am so past stumped any help would be appreciated!

    Is there anyway to test the ignition switch, or is there any particular way to be positive that it is bad before I just replace it?

Sounds like you may have the solenoid wire end touching the power wire, causing the starter to run constantly. If not, you may have a bad ignition switch.

    To check the ignition switch, with the switch in the run postion, not the starting postion, check the small wire going to the starter solenoid for power, if there is, the ignition switch is bad.

Check fusable links in your battery cable and starter wires. Do you have power at the starter where the positive cable attaches? Your battery is good? Do you have any power anywhere else?

Check and load test battery. If good, use a volt meter across both terminals.. when.cranking, volts should not drop below 9.5. If it does, replace starter. No valid starter test can be done unless battery has been proven to be good.
