After installation, the engine was static timed. When the starter was used the
engine turned over slowly as if the battery was weak. The mystery began when the
key was turned off and removed. The starter continued to slowly turn the
engine. Two starter, a new ignition switch and a new neutral safety switch
failed to cure the problem. As the starter turns after the key is removed the
battery negative cable get HOT!
All types of tricks have been tried. Disconnecting, the alternator among other.
Nothing stops the starter from turning. The car has a new engine compartment
and body wiring harness. It also has a new stater 'mini-harness'. The car has a
I'm stumped. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
Cables always get warm / hot after 30 seconds of cranking.... only a larger gauge will cure that..
Forget all the other things....
Pull the starter harness from the car's harness. Remove the Bat cableS from the battery
Pull the LR wheel and Using Jumper cables to the solenoid and starter body... try cranking it there..
Also when you separate the Starter's harness.... try turning the key.... read the purple and then the Yellow wires for Voltage AFTER you release the key..
