Re: Starter problems - wiring question -help
John, when the solenoid is activated, it causes the starer drive to extend into the flywheel/flexplate. By the same token, if the starter drive is fully extended, it causes the solenoid to be in the 'start' position. It connects the battery lug and 'S' lug inside the solenoid. If power is supplied, the starter will crank. Turn the power off, it stops. Turn the power back on, it cranks again. Then once the starter drive pops back out of the ring gear, everything will be normal again. Next time it does this, crawl under it and see if the starter is engauged. If it is, then the starter needs to be repositioned so as to allow the drive to return when the key is released from the start position.
This may not be the problem, but it sounds like it. Plus it doesn't cost anything to check it.
