    Starter Wont Stop Cranking

    I have a SLT750 and it recently got flooded. The electrical box was full of water as well along with corrosion so I replaced it. I got all the water out of the engine and everything put back together. I then started trying to get it to crank and it was cranking over just fine for several tries and then it was like the starter was stuck. It would not stop cranking, I had to disconnect the battery to get it to stop. Does anyone know what might be wrong causing this?

    Sounds like the start solenoid (relay) has failed. You might get it to behave by whacking it with a screw driver handle a few times, but it really should be replaced.

    OR, the start switch itself has shorted or has corrosion inside. An ohm-meter should tell you which it is.

    Next possibility is a short in the start switch wiring...

    It definately is not the start switch, I already replaced it with a spare one I had. Is the solenoid relay on the starter itself? Can the solenoid relay be replaced or does the entire starter need to be replaced? Can the starter be replaced without pulling the engine?
