Could be a bad starter/solenoid, or it needs shimming. When the starter wears out sometimes the bendix won't return and when the engine starts the starter stays engaged.
There also sounds like there could be a short in the harness to keep power going to the starter even when the key is turned off. You really need to get the car to a mechanic to have it fixed. You'll probably spend more by replacing parts that MIGHT be bad instead of letting a mechanic look at it and determine what it really needs.
tanks jody im gowing to try to fix this mi self i dont hav alot of money so il probubly try to git one of my frinds hoo are mecanics to tel mee what thae thenk but thy haerdly ever hav exstra time to help me out by the way do you no of any books that tel you how to take stuf upart and fix it thank,s agen for the hint jody hitman
Sounds to me like a bad solenoid.I'd install a whole starter,though.When you jumped it,are you meaning the battery,or starter? I think you are saying the starter whines,but did'nt engage at first.Then,after jumping it,the starter kept running.Was the engine turning over?
i jumed the batery ya the engen was terning over the howl time wen i let off the key ti just kept on till i took the jumper kabuls off i theenk it has somthing to do whith the sterter but im stel not sur thanks hitman
I'm assuming the battery is dead,charge it up,or replace it.I've seen starters stick when the battery is low volts.Check the starter wiring.Purple wire goes to the S terminal,small lug nearest the engine block.Make sure the batt cable is not touching the purple wire.The purple wire has power when cranking.If all this is good,starter is junk.
