Re: [DML] Starter run on.



Steve,
 
It appears everyone else is busy talking about trademarks, so I will attempt to help.
 
The blue/yellow wire goes to the ignition resistor which assists in starting the engine item #56 on the black and white wiring diagram).  Your run on problem sounds like you have a crossed wire somewhere in the starting circuit that is keeping the starter "hot" after you release the key.  You need to back track the wiring from the starter and see which wire is "hot" and then see what is causing it to be hot.  Let us know what you find.

I thought I had figured out that my starter run on problem was the starter solenoid and or starter. But after installing a new starter, I still have the problem. Here is a summary of events.

- I changed the exhaust manifold a few months ago. While removing and installing the starter, I broke a resister looking component that was in the blue-yellow wire connected to the solenoid. I didn't see this thing on the wiring diagram so I left it out. I ran the car for a few weeks without a problem. Oh ya, did I mention that the run on problem only occurs on a warm re-start of the car, not at the cold start. So I might not have tried a warm start during this time.
- Then I tackled the steering column bushing which meant removing the steering column, ignition switch, etc.
- After I got everything back together, I had the run on problems begin.
- I did the starter relay test i.e., while the run on was occurring, I removed the relay and the starter run on continued. So ah ha, I concluded that it was not the ignition switch or relay but had to be the starter or solenoid. 

But as mention above, a new started and solenoid did not solve the problem. Any help on where to go from here would be appreciated.

Anyone know what the resister in the blue-yellow wire might have been for?

Steve
