Hello all! 92' TRX300FW starter stays engaged until battery is disconnected. I tried a known good solenoid but, problem still exists. Mind you, this happens even with the key out of the ignition!

I've checked/cleaned & greased all the connections to the starter and the battery compartment. So, I'm leaning towards a short in the circuit (wires) between the battery compartment and the push button. Has anyone experienced a bad starter diode (looks more like a relay via the manual) located under the front fender? Any & all help is appreciated!

P.S. I searched the forums and found a very similar post but, the findings & solution was never posted. So, I know there's at least 2 of us out there who experienced this problem!

Are you sure the solenoid is wired correctly? It sounds like you don't have the wires correct.
You should have:
- Ground from starter area to NEG battery post
- Short red cable from POSITIVE battery post to one side of solenoid
- Cable from STARTER to other side of solenoid.

Post a pic of your wiring layout and I can help you.
