STARTER

1989 Mercedes Benz 300e

Electrical problem
1989 Mercedes Benz 300e Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles

car would not start (starter not ingaging flywheel) purchased rebuilt bosch starter. After installing new starter car cranked-up first try. After sitting about and hour tried to start again car started ok, but when I turned the car off the starter kept spinning. Had to disconnect neg. Battery to stop the spinning, the key is out, but the starter still spins when the battery cable is put back on. Now when I try to start the car I get nothing, just a spinning starter all the time and the car will not start.

Thanks
