Car Starting Problems
Starters and Ignition Systems

Why would the starter on a Tahoe keep firing without turning the key in park or neutral?

Sounds like the solenoid on top of the starter is bad. If the plunger return spring is broken, the starter stays engaged all the time.

the car will not fire unless it will turn over , so the question makes no since.

Weak or dead battery? Loose or corroded battery cables? Engine seized? Bad starter? Bad starter solenoid? Bad neutral switch?

if the starter is TRYING to start the engine check to see if your getting fuel. if it doesn't then check battery connections, starter, fuses. if no fuel check fuses, pump, and filter. if it is simply not firing check plugs, distributor cap and rotor, and plug wires. HOWEVER if it ISN'T turning over, but the starter is turning the motor then check the TIMING BELT.
