ok so i searched the forum and i did all the things that i found about this problem..... When i turn my key to the run position my starter kicks on and proceeds to crank until i eather turn the key back to the off position or i pull the little wire off the solanoid... so far i have replaced the ignition switch, replaced the solanoid, replaced the lock cylinder, and had the starter tested (passed), and i have checked all my battery grounds... and guess what the problem is exactly the same.

what happens when you put the wire back on does it start cranking again.from what your describing the problem is between the ignition switch and the solenoid. are you sure the actuator rod is not sticking.

if thats the rod between the key and the ignition switch then yes i am sure cuss i can wacth it move with everything ripped apart... also the problem happens as soon as you put the key into the run spot (not turning it to start position first)

Sounds like you need to try to adjust the ignition switch. More than likely the switch needs to move a little bit away from the steering wheel.

When you turn the key to the start position and let it go, does the rod move back, as in to the run position?

i'm thinking a short if the starter cranks when you only turn the switch on. you could isolate the wire that runs from the switch to the solenoid and pull it out of the plug. then test for power when you turn the switch on. (your testing the switch not the wire) if you get no power then push the switch to start. if you get power then you know you have a short. hope this makes sense.

^ +1 hes got it on the head 2 things must be happening for that starter to engauge.. most have ground must have power... the switch sends the power.. i think your problem would be in the switch or a short.. by pass the current wire and run a new one. see if that elimnates the problem after you locate the wire and test the switch...

new parts can fail too.. dont rule a piece out because its been replaced
