Starters and Ignition Systems

Why would it sound like the starter stays engaged when reconnecting the negative battery cable after installing a new starter?

Well you might want to check the wires that connect back to the starter. If you missed one that should be bolted to the starter it'll be hanging or stuck somewhere - most likely touching metal. If it is touching any metal it will always try to engage when you hook up the other end of the wire to the battery. -Sara replace your selonid
