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.

Starter just spins after ignition wire replaces - no fire


Sounds like you have the starter wires hooked up wrong and to continuous power. If starter shuts off with the key now, but wont engage the motor, you may need shims so that the starter drive lines up with the motors fly wheel

97 marquis fires up but dies


Do you have power to the fuel pump once the key ios released? Try this, start the engine and carefully let the ignition switch back off until the starter is not engaged, does it stay running? If so you need a new ignition starter switch, the switch is located on the top bottom of the steering column under the dash.

All comes on when key is turned on, starter will not engage when key turned to position. new starter, new battery, starter attempts to start car when jumped at starter relay 87 w/key on. car had started,...


Does the car have a factory security system? it may have a starter kill on it.
also check for voltage at the starter solenoid while someone holds the key to start position, you could have a faulty ignition switch.
the engine light stays on when the key is on until engine starts.

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.
