I am restoring this vehicle. I have had the vehicle a little over a month now, spent the last few weeks researching the components in the jeep. It is a '1975 CJ5 with a 258ci I6 from a 1978 CJ5, with a 1978 carter 1 bbl carburetor. I have replaced the solenoid, cables, ignition switch, and other non-electrical parts.
Here is my problem, when I turn the key and engage the starter, it continues to run even after the key is off. I have to remove the cable from the battery in order to get it to stop.
I swapped out (reversed) the cables on the solenoid. The same thing happens but, if I tap the solenoid it stops. Thing is, if I bump the solenoid, the starter starts turning the motor over again. I bumped the solenoid again and it stops.
Bad solenoid? What's your opinion, suggestion?
have the same problem?
