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.Once the stater stays engaged dose it disengage if you remove the starter relay? Try this if you can and let me know the results. I have enclosed the starter circuit diagram in the link below for reference as well.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/104923897/starter%20Mar%2021.pdf
No problem, check it when you can and we can work from there.
Are you sure the relay is not hanging on you?
Well if your sure its not the starter relay relay then something has to be back feeding the starter system .
Okay well try pulling R8 relay , if its the starter relay the engine should not stall .
Looking at the wiring diagram it dose not show any connection to the ECM so I do not think it would be any part of the problem.
No problem, Im here as long as need be. Let me know and we can work from there.
The neck time the starter stays engage try smacking the relay and see if it is sticking or try replacing it with a known good relay.
Okay. Let me know
Something has to be feeding the start circuit if the starter is staying engaged. It going to be a matter of starting at the ignition switch and working you way forward to determine the cause.
Yes I would agree with that, if you are able to stop the starter from spinning by removing the relay then something has to be shorted from the ignition to the relay causing the relay is stay engaged. .
