Thanks for the reply's! Yes I did compare the design/configuration of the original starter to the replacements. They both fit with zero issues and no grinding. The starter is a throw type. I saw them bench tested and they both engage and disengaged properly. I am beginning to think that my EWSII module is malfunctioning and allowing starting voltage to the starter at all times. Since the EWSII module controls the starter and acts as the starter relay. I am currently researching on bypassing my EWSII by buying and installing a "Bosh Motortronic M3.1 Red Label 413 DME. Along with changing some wiring around. My reasoning is simply if the EWSII controls the starter, maybe it is locked up in the start position even after start up. Does this make sense, anyone agree with this?
