Starter remains in-gauged James Schulz 6-28-15  
I have a 2000 Fleetwood Bounder with a ISB 275 Cummins. After a 3 month storage, I started my engine and the first time it started with no problems. After a short period I shut it off and later started it again. This time, I heard a loud squealing sound and then it went away, so I drove it home and parked it. Next day, I attempted to start it, although all the lights would come on, it wouldn't crank. After determining the batteries were just fine, I came to a conclusion that it might be the starter, so long story short, I changed the starter. Now it starts just fine, although after I start the motor, the starter will not disengage while the engine is running. When I immediately turn the key off, the engine stops firing, but the starter continues to crank the engine for a few seconds and then finally stops. Does anyone know what could be causing this issue?

There is a simple test to see if the starter is spaced wrong or faulty or you have a sticky start relay. (90% of the time a bad start relay)

Disconect the starter solinoid start wire. Wire a heavy switch in place of it. Crank the engine using your bypass switch. Symptom? y/n If yes starter problem,
If no then:
Find relay that controls your starter solinoid, DIsconect the out put wire. Have some one crank the starter while you hold the wire on the terminal. If the engine contrinues to crank after key release, pull wire off. Did the starter quit? Bad relay.

If its a small plug in relay you get the same effect by yanking the relay from the socket.
