Starter Fried

I believe I know why, after speaking to Wyatt over at RST. However, I want to just post and maybe get another tip or idea.

My problem, starter fried, why? Wyatt Believes that corrosion inside caused it to stick and fry.

Alright so the story...

It's been 4 months nearly since I last started the truck. I last used it for snow wheeling/trail riding, however it was deep snow at times. I today finally was able to come home and start it to load it on the trailer.

First I cranked it over several times before it fired, but once it fired (after replacing a new battery, different story) it ran just fine. I took it around the block a few times and when I went to turn around I put it into "N" Neutral, and it shot off and immediately fired back up ON ITS OWN. It still ran just fine.

I thought to myself well shit time to bring it back and investigate. When I got home, I put the truck into "P" Park and it continuted to fire, the started constantly tried firing and firing. So I shut the truck off duh... NO! That did not help, it continuted to fire, WHEN THE TRUCK WAS OFF!!

I quickly ran out of the truck and disconected the battery, however it was to late the starter had fried, smoke was rolling from it. Any idea on what the hell this is?

I still believe Wyatt's thought that the starter was just corroded and got stuck on by it's self. But before installing a new starter, I want to know exactly what I'm getting in too.

Thanks,

yada...yada.. 2.7l Auto, you know the rest.

on my 99 3.4 the starter did the same thing. I went to start the truck in the morning(daily driver) and the starter wouldn't let go, it just kept on cranking even though I took the key out and held it in my hand. Went under truck with a hammer and whacked the living shit out of it and it quit. Happened one more time and then "KLICK" no more starter. I ended up replacing the copper contacts in the solonoid for under 5 bucks and now it works like a new starter. It's common, being a 2000 it just happens, good luck

Thanks, bump. Still looking for another idea too. Haven't replaced the starter yet, no time. Just gathering ideas.

Update: It was completely the starter, fired right up and ran flawlessly. Thanks!

Also, with the SAS it's easier to stand under the truck versus lying down haha! Otherwise, the leaf springs were in my way of my arms the entire time.
