    I don't really have any idea how to go about fixing this. But when i went to start my blazer the starter stuck and kept running after a had taken the key out, then i went and turned the disconnect switch off, after i turned it back on the starter started spinning again finally after the next time i disconnected it shut off, and i got back in and it started up with no problems. Afterwards i realized that my stereo had blown out and i had to brake lights but all the other lights were fine. Does anyone got any advice. Thanks

    That would be my guess. Welded contacts inside the solenoid. If you're still running a 24V system, I have no idea where you would find another one. :dunno:

    Try this place http://www.nationsautoelectric.com/ . They list repair parts for most (all?) starters including the 24V CUCV. Save the wear and tear on the butt stock of your M16 :rolleyes:
