2000 waverunner starter wont stop

I have a 2000 gp1200r waverunner and my starter sometimes won't stop. Last year this happened and it completely melted my starter and my relay. I changed both my starter and relay this year and I still have the same problem. When I try to start it and if it does not start right away the starter will keep turning even if I don't push the green starter button. Trying to get out on the water this year because this problem wouldn't let me last year. Thanks

Could be a stuck switch (green button). If you find the wire that goes to the wiring harness (green button) you can test for continuity with a multimeter to see if this is the case. The only other thing it could be is the computer.

This is most often caused by a battery that does not have a full charge on it. The low amperage available from the battery causes the contacts inside the starter relay to weld themselves together and allow the electric starter motor to continue to run even after the starter button is pushed. Always start out with a fully charged battery and you will not have this problem.

Intermittent starter won't engage on mercrusier7.4 1988 boat engine

might be a burned spot on the starter contacts where the brushes power the motor.
tap the starter to see if problem goes away.
sometimes you can clean the contacts but that is a temporary fix.

My blazer trys to start but wont turn over and its not every time some times it will some times it wont. i had the fuel filter changed in it cause someone told me to try that but there is no differece.

by not turning over i`m guessing that you mean the engine won`t crank over,if you mean won`t start when the engine turns over then that is a different path of diagnosis.if you mean that it starts to turn crank over but stops almost immediately then this could be a weak battery,or bad starter with a bad spot in the starter,that`s why it will start sometimes and sometimes not as the starter hits and misses stopping on the bad spot.if you mean it cranks over fine but will not start then this could be a fuel pump going bad,a dirty throttle body,a bad crank of cam sensor,these usually set a code in the computer and sometimes turns on the check engine light sometimes should have the computer checked for codes to see if there is any,or just a wiring problem for the ignition system

2000 gp1200r will go 5 mph with rpms 8000

Have you checked your impeller, even on the sandiest beach all it takes is 1 pebble to damage it. Its a common problem (all noise and no action) if it was a car you could liken it to clutch slip or wheel spin, when you take the impeller out the damage will be fairly obvious, ding marks on the leading edge and bent areas on the trailing edge. Solution :- Birmingham Screwdriver (Hammer) and cobblers last or tow hitch ball. Gently hammer out the bent bits and smooth the sharp edges off the ding bits (Both of these cause cavitation). This should get you back on the water within the hour. If this sounds a bit too much to have a go at then seek professional help. There are plenty of companies out there who can do the job, it's just a question of cost and time. Give it a go, you never know it might work.

Randomly wont start

Well the starter is 17 years old. Nippon Denso and Hitachi starters are prone to low voltage at the solenoid signal wire (black with white stripe).
