I have just recharged my battery from the dealership and when i tried to put the last attachment on, the starter kept starting uncontrollably. This is also with the key out of the ignition. But when the key is in the turned on position it can start right up but again the starter is still at it. The starter button doesn't stick at all. I hope its not an internal electrical thing. Does anyone know what the problem is? Could it be the battery?
I had the same experience happen to me at the Hoot a couple of weeks ago...............
Went to start the scoot, and the starter stayed engaged with my thumb off the switch. I turned off the key, and it was still cranking! :shock: When I turned the key back on, the scoot started and the starter kept on spining as if I had pressed the start button. At that point, I pushed the starter button a couple of times hard and fast in and out, and the starter stopped cranking................. Has not done it since. I suspected my contacts were stuck at the switch, but I wish I knew how it kept cranking with the key power killed?
You might want to try to move your switch in and out a few times before hooking up the battery...................who knows?
