Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Here is a representation of the starter for this specific pwc:
There is the starter gear and the bendix, I am wondering if you instead have a problem with the bendix, if not and the starter is engaging then check for a short in the wiring or a stuck relay, also check for a bad connection, you could have a wiring issue or stuck relay or low voltage/bad battery/cell which could cause this as well.
Remove the power from the starter or the neg cable from the battery and if the starter disengages then you know it is not related to the starter. You would then want to start by having the battery load tested and checking all connections, battery cables including the ground cable which commonly go bad and the starter relay as well as checking no power to small start signal connection on the relay unless trying to start. This would include checking start/stop switch is not stuck on as well.
Thank you!
- Joe
