Constant power to starter
1998 Dodge Ram Van, with 5.9L V8. Started
not starting when key was turned, with click
noise that sounded like it was in the Ignition.
So, have her a tune up. Tried starting, and
the thing fired right up, woohoo!! However,
tried to shut it off, and it continued to try to
start, EVEN WITHOUT THE KEY!! So,
changed out the Ignition harness....then the
starter....Still tries to start with NO KEYS!!
Touch negative cable to the terminal, and
tries firing up. HELP!! I have a possessed
OIl was leaking down on the starter from filter , oil was getting on the starter brushers so it would click until it found a clean spot and then it would start , itook the starter off & sprayed it at the car wash wirh hi pressure fixed oil leak, no problem after
If the engine cranked over without being in the start position means the starter solonid arched inside if you tap the solonid gently it will break loose most times
Loss of power could be cat. converter have somebody rev it up while you check how much ex is coming out of tail pipi
No spark anywhere , make sure you have good ground to engine as well to body .i fixed a problem like this last week....
The starter solonid sticking is useually caused by low battery tap the solonid with hammer gently .
