Starter engaging

Asked by Sep 13, 2016 at 08:25 PM about the 1994 Mercury Topaz

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The starter keeps engaging on my 1994 topaz. I
have replaced the starter and sylnoid but it keeps
engaging while the car is running

1 Answer


Unplug the small wire from the solenoid and recheck, if it no longer engages then there is possibly a cross circuit in that small wire any where from the key switch to the solenoid. If it still engages with the small wire unhooked, then either you have a bad solenoid or the cables are connected wrong.
