I think your starter solenoid is stuck in the closed position. Replace it.

SOURCE: starter not turning after winter. battery was removed/charg

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

If the starter motor will not turn, a few ideas to consider:

  • the starter motor is actually switched by the starter relay. The starter relay is switched by the start button;
  • on pressing the start button there would be an audible click, that would be the starter relay;
  • the starter relay will only work if the sidestand is down, the bike is in neutral and the engine switch is on. These are the interlocks/safeguards;
  • to locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the + terminal of the battery;
  • press on the start button, the starter relay should click;
  • if starter motor will not turn, jumper the two big terminals of the starter relay using a wrench. Do it on the nuts not on the threaded portion;
  • if the starter motor engages, then the starter relay is faulty;
  • if there is no click from the starter relay, either it is faulty or any of the interlocks is preventing it from working;
  • if there is click but the starter will not spin and then will spin when the terminals are jumped, then the contacts of the starter relay are faulty;
  • if even jumping the terminals, the starter motor will not turn, then it wold be a defective starter motor, most likely the carbon brushes.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: starter motor turning,but engine doesn't!!

Sounds like you have a problem with the timing chain and the valve timing is out meaning a valve is down when the piston at the top causing an interference. Take the spark plugs out and with the bike in a high gear and on the center stand see if the engine will turn over by hand by pulling the back wheel. Don't force it or you will bend a valve and damage the piston though it probably has happened already. You would need to open the engine up and see what is happening with the timing chain, valve timing etc and go from there.

starter button is stuck possibly on the inside or the solenoid contacts are bonded together inside. you can take a continuity test between the posts.

your starter button is malfunctioning. maybe some oxidation in the switch. when starter button is pressed in that can cause your other electrical stuff to not work.

When i turn key off it continues to try and start and eventually runs battery down


Jeffs solution (above) is for a different problem. If the Starter Motor continues to turn with the Ign. Sw. off, yours won't be a Starter Motor problem. However, the most likely cause is either the wire to the Starter Solinoid or the Solinoid itself.

I can't see the alternator being the cause either, as suggested above.
.
Try this
Disconnect the thin wire from the Solinoid (this is the one that activates the Starter when you turn the key).
With the battery charged, the Starter shouldn't work. Put the wire back and try again. If the same problem is there, quickly remove the wire.
One of 2 things will happen:-
1: The Starter will stop. The cause is in the wire to the Ign. Sw. or the Ign. Sw.
2: The Starter will continue turning. Repair or replace the Solinoid.

My starter still will not disengage on my 98 dodge caravan even when the key is turn in the off position. have to remove the battery cable in order to get it to stop turning over the motor


So, what did you find when you checked the starter relay? Either the relay has the contacts stuck closed or the wire between the relay and the starter is shorted to battery voltage. If it stops cranking when you pull the relay out, then the relay is at fault.

99 dodge ram 3500 diesel starter will not shut off with key, turn off key and starter moter stays engaged and engine has run on. had to disconnect both batteries. gently tapped starter selenoid with hammer...


it sounds like the starter solenoid contacts are not separating to stop the starter from turning.the run on is due to the starter not stopping causing the motor to continue to spin.replace the starter unit as it will have damage due to being engaged with the motor running,also have the flywheel inspected to make sure the teeth are not damaged on it.

MOTOR OPERTAES WITHOUT KEY


your starter,solenoid or ignition is no good. but my first choice,i think your solenoid is shorted because when you hook up the battery,it cranks but does not start.that means your ignition switch is still working.

1999 Toyota Corolla CE. For about 2 months, the engine does not start immediately. I need to turn the ignition key several times until it starts. Each time when I turn the key, a clicking sound happens...


it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
