My truck is a 1997 2.4L 2wd reg cab with manual everything.
For awhile it has intermittently kept the starter engaged after starting, I would turn it off and then turn it back on and all would be good.
Today the starter engaged and stayed engaged until I disconnected the battery, reconnecting the battery cable immediately engages the starter.
I searched around on the forum and found these threads:
Those were helpful and I have the Haynes manual and google to help me remove and breakdown the relevant part.
From what I've read I'll be repairing or replacing the starter, starter relay or solenoid. I'll be getting anything that I can't find in a local auto parts store shipped to me through Rock Auto.
My questions to you and the reason I created a new thread is:
1) Based on the given information can anyone pinpoint the problem to a certain component?
2) If the problem can't be pinpointed to a specific component, where should I start?
3) For this problem can I rebuild or do I have to replace and if I can rebuild, what replacement parts would I need?
I'm on Christmas Exodus from Army Warrant Officer Candidate School right now and report back tomorrow afternoon for the last few weeks of training so I won't be able to communicate or do anything about this until the end of the month.
Any information you can give me is greatly appreciated as I'd like to get this taken care of as soon as possible after I graduate.
Thanks in advance!
