NEED HELP! STUCK!!

Guys,

I'm stuck at school with my 95 f250. I've bought a starter not that long ago, but not it sems to have a problem. When I turn my key to crank, it cranks and then wont stop cranking no matter what the key position. I can turn it all the way off and it still wont stop cranking. is this a column problem or a starter? When I disconnected my batttery everything stopped (obviously), but that was the only way. How do I proceed? Need help ASAP!

Thanks,

Brian

probably wrong starter. sometimes if the starter is to tight meshing in the flywheel it wont disengage.when it does that try tapping it with a hammer don't beat it to death, and see if it disengages.

ok well thanks I'll try that then. gotta love the trucks that you can just crawl under to get to anything. I have a lifetime warranty on my starter so it doesn't cost me anything to swap it out. Jake, when you say solenoid, are you talking about the solenoid (on the starter) or the relay (mounted on passenger side fender)?

Thanks,

Brian

I'm sure he was talking about what you call the "relay" on the fender, the contacts inside might be fried together causing the starter to have power even with the key not in the crank position.
