starter or ignition switch?
My 95 s-10 blazer won't start. When I try to start it the key stays in the run position and
the starter keeps cranking. Is it my starter or my ignition switch? The vehicle has a 4.3
vortex, auto trans and 4-,wheel drive
If the key stays in the he forward most position(start) then its the switch. If it comes back to the run position then it's probably going to be the starter.
The starter switch in the key ignition setting sends electric power to the starter. When you release the key after the start, the electricity current flow is suppose to stop the current to the starter. If this does not happen, the starter will continue to wind. Unless you have a direct short to the starter wire, (solenoid), the switch is not releasing the connection made by the key. So in short, (no pun intended) it is the switch.
I had same problem w/my 95 blazer. Replaced the ignition switch and that solved the problem. Cost me $69.00 at auto zone.Takes about an hour. Just be careful of the air bag!!
My starter is sticking in park and neutral but not n drive can u help
GuruYYMX, by sticking, do you mean to say it is continuing to run, or will not turn the engine over? I looked on your profile and didn't see any information. What year is your car, and is it an automatic transmission or stick shift? Most modern automatic cars will not start unless it is in park and some older ones when it is also in neutral. To assist with your problem please give as much information as possible. Saving a snowman in the arctic circle is different in South Florida. Thanks, and if you got it fixed, let us know. Information helps everyone.
So I'm having this issue with my 89 k5 blazer. Although it happened while driving down the road.. the starter kicked on and now won't turn off.. So the signal wire to from the ignition to the starter was pulled off the starter end to shut it off. And now to start it, need one person to hold the wire on starter while other turns key then they take the wire off.. can anyone tell me what the cause of this would be???
