Car Batteries
Ford Ranger

Why would a starter on an 89 ranger work fine one day and then try to start as soon as the battery is connected the next?

Battery may have been weak the previous day and when trying to

start created excessive heat through the starter solenoid causing

it to "weld" in the closed postion. When charged battery was

installed solenoid was already in closed position. May release

itself or solenoid may have to be replaced
