S/G keeps turning over

Recommended Posts

After finishing mowing last night with my 7018H, when I turned the ignition key off, the s/g kept turning over. Had to disconnect the positive cable from the solenoid to stop it. While it was still warm, if I touched the cable back to the solenoid, it would start doing it again. I left it alone until this morning, and when I touched the solenoid, nothing. Where should I start looking? I replaced the ignition switch last year. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Gary

I had a solenoid that would energize with the ignition switch, but would stay energized. I replaced it and haven't had any more problems.

The one I mentioned above had an internal failure. Only way it would release was to remove the solenoid from ground. That is why I had to replace it. When it was activated, it would self-energize and would stay that way even if ignition power was removed. It was somehow getting power internally from the battery lead when energized.
