Starter motor runs too long 4 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 1
Hi all,

My 2's starter motor continues to run after the engine has started but it does disengage once I've driven a few meters.

It's a refurbished fully tested starter and it seems to be working fine just not disengaging quick enough.

1st does anyone know why it'd be doing that?

2nd i'm going away in it to England so won't be able to sort it till i'm over there whats the worst that can happen if it keeps over running? I know if it stays on it'll burn out but as it stops fairly soon will it cause damage?

Cheers

In the boot there is a green relay, unplug it and start it by shorting out the 2 thickest wires with a paper clip while ignition is on, pull out paper clip when engine starts that way you wont damage anything until you get the problem sorted.

Get It sorted man.. sounds like it just needs a new 1..I service a volvo a while back in the garage and the owner went somewhere over the weekend and the car went on fire while she was driving. . Car burnt to a crisp and turned out the starter stuck
