Mercury Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.In order to be able to help you we need to know what year your Comet it. One other thing you need to check is to see if you are getting key on cranking power to the small start wire at the starter solenoid while the starter is stuck on. Check this for me and post back with the year and we can work from there.
If its still cranking with both small wire removed from the solenoid then that would indicate the solenoid is stuck. Are both cables on each side of it reading battery voltage, the one going to the starter should have no power unless the solenoid is engaged.
There should only be power on the red/blue small wire and only in the crank postion.
If your sure its not coming from the ignition switch then you have to have a short to power in the circuit someplace from the ignition switch to the solenoid.
No problem, Im here if you need me.
Okay, Im here everyday except Sundays.
