The way this sounds to me is the starter starts the car but when you let off the key the starter still goes? i hope i interperated that right. well it sounds like your starter is going to have to be replaced because you have a pull in and a hold in wineding in the starter and i think that your hold in is not realeasing when it should this used to be a very common problem on some of the older fords
hope i was usefull

I have a 2008 nissian Altima 3.5 I changed the battery and starter and the car starts but the starter wont disengage and making a horrible noise and is the same thing that made me change the starter

You need to look at a wiring diagram to see what controls the starter ! Possibly a starter relays contacts are stuck closed keeping B+ voltage applied to the starter ! You can find free wiring diagrams at .I also see a electronic control module is involved . There are two relays starter control relay and starter relay !

Can I get the installation wiring diagram for remote starter viper where can this be found

1998 Cherokee?
wow , old bendix starters ,they are long long gone, (done many)
a blast from the past. LOL
so is this an after market hacked in Remote?>
well buy a new system and read the instructions.
if using an old system , get the instructions online, at makers web site, we can not guess makers, of anything aftermarket.

it hangs up the starter solenoid, , and is very dangerous to you , like that. sure.
my guess is the control (in car) is bad, shorted relay in box or transistor that drives the small wire to the starter, or to cars starter relay .

the starter relay is in the USA PDC fuse box.
all answers USA , not export jeeps, this is a USA forum (calif)

Starter disengage

The teeth on the flywheel or starter drive could be damaged enough to cause sticking and it does not release. Another reason could be the clearance between teeth on the flywheel and starter drive are too tight. The starter would need more metal tabs or spacers to increase the clearance distance between the teeth on each one.

I just replaced my starter on my 99 gmc yukon and it was fine for 10 minutes then it made this weired noise and when I went to turn the truck off the engine kept going and then smoke came from the starter...

Sounds to me like your starter did not disengage and was running the whole time when vehicle running. From your key to the starter is a "trigger wire" which activates the starter when you turn the key. If that wire end touches other wires on the starter then the solenoid will stay on keeping the starter running which will then over heat and burn out the starter. If vehicle was running fine before the starter replacement there is really nothing else it could be.

Starter engages but wont disengage when started

You'll need to figure out if it is an electrical problem or something hanging up in the bell housing.
You can leave off the wire from the key and try it to see if something is powering the solenoid after you release the key switch. If your model has the solenoid on the fender it could be sticking.

I have a 1997 chevy cavalier with a 2.2 liter 4 cyl. starter wont disengage tried to new starters and relay and its still does it. It worked fine before i had to replace the starter.

disconnect the s terminal on the starter and connect the battery, if the starter engages then its the starter, if it doesnt check the voltage on the small wire it should be dead unless the key is in the start pos
