Hello here again, when I am driving, sometime the starter engages itself and to stop that, I have to pull over open the hood and disconnect the positive probe of the battery. How can I resolve that issue and please make sure that you provide me with a schematic diagram.
Do you
have the same problem?

So, what happens with these cars is the TIPM goes out and causes the starter to engine at will. To be sure we should perform a CAN scan which is easy to do, you can get a CAN scanner (Controller Area Network) from Amazon from about $32.0.

Here is a video to show you how:

Here are the starter wiring diagrams so you can see how the system works and I have included the TIPM replacement instructions in case you need them. Check out the images (below). Please let us know what happens.
