if your talking about the one on or in the starter, you have a bad solinoid. This could be or come to be very serious, very quickly, for instance, if it sticks while the gears are engaged it will burn out the starter and maybe a feed back that could burn wires. A starter uses a lot of juice and the wires could get very hot if the starter sticks

Why do the brake lights constantly stay on whether the vehicle is on or off?

There is a brake light switch mounted high up on the brake pedal. The switch has a plunger which is released (extends) when you step on the brake pedal. This completes an electrical circuit. The switch has either come loose from where is it mounted so that the plunger is released all the time or part of the plunger has broken off. This has the same effect as having the plunger released.

How do you install a headlight switch on a 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee?

My son's went out, and here's how he did it. You'll have to remove the dashboard panels (look for the exposed screws). When you get to the headlight switch, reach to the right side of the switch itself (behind the dash); there's a release button there. Press it as you pull the plunger completely out. The hole where the plunger went in has large Phillips head slots; put a screwdriver in it and turn left and completely remove. The switch is now loose; disconnect it on the left from the wiring harness plug.

The clutch safety switch is on the clutch pedal shaft. It is a small black box with a plunger coming out of it. When you push the clutch down, the clutch safety switch connects the starter and it should turn over. If it doesn't you may have to replace it or adjust it. It's adjustable. Just adjust it until the red plunger is fully retracted out of the switch when the clutch pedal is pushed in all the way.

Limit switch is one type Of " Contact Sensor" , In that there is Normally Open Contact & Normally Close Contact, In limit switch there is Plunger it is Directly Connected to NO & NC Contact if we press the plunger NO contact become NC & NC contact become NO, Working Principle same as Contactor ( DOL starter ) main difference is in contactor There is Coil to attract the Plunger But In Limit Swict Plunger is Operated Mecanically.Limit Switches is used mainly for Safety Purpose & to take Feed back for PLC in Automation industries........Source(s):In My Plant I have installed limit Switches.. A limit switch is a switch, usually mechanical, that is actuated by a moving part of some machine. Its operation is much like any other switch in that there are contacts that move when a plunger or lever on the outside of the switch is pushed. Internally there is an over center spring mechanism that snaps the switch open or shut in response to a gradual motion of the plunger or lever.Many limit switches have three terminals. One is the normally closed contact, another the normally open contact, and the third is the common that switches between these two as the mechanism is moved.
