    Hello everyone,
    I am of course new here. I have a 95 tacoma and an 06 corolla in the garage.

    I Started my 95 tacoma 2.4 ol' reliable today and heard a some rattling from the engine bay. Couldn't quite hear where it was comming from so I turned the key off but the starter kept turning over the engine untill I disconnected the battery. Every time I reconnect the battery the starter keeps turning over the engine without the key. I figure it is a problem with thestarter but I don't know exactly if it is the celinoid or what exactly.

    Thanks for any help, I appreciate it. I'll be calling the preist now. :eek:

    I don't know that much about the electrical system, but I might check the ignition system as well...could be something shorting or stuck there because if it thinks that the key is in and turned all the way forward, that could be what keeps the starter going.

    Sounds like a good place to start, but don't rule out the ignition system, your priest might have his work cut out for him. :eek:

    Check your starter solenoid(in black box behind battery) and make sure the cable from the battery to your starter is tight.

    yeah might be as simple as the hot+ battery cable is actually touching the smaller sire that activates the starter(the wire the ignition turns on basically) I have seen them melt together before with similar result one way to rule out your key ignition is to take bottom dash panel out...reach up and unplug ignition (right on back of key switch) and try and tap the battery cable to the battery if it spins you have a direct connection in the sytem none key related
