    I Have had a short circuit repaired on my 2013 Husky TE449.

    The problem I have now is when I press the start button the bike will turn over and start but the starter keeps on running.

    If I remove the power the starter stops but as soon as I press the start button again it just keeps running.

    I have tested the relays and they are ok and I have bypassed the starter button with a loop but the problem is still there.

    Has anyone had the same problem?

    Sounds like a bit of sandy grit or dirt may have infiltrated itself into the start switch in the switch housing. Split the switch housing apart and clean it well with some aerosol contact cleaner, air pressure and re-lube the switch with some electrical safe lube of your choice. Then check it out by testing the switch before reassembling to see if it stops hanging up.

    Thanks but I have already tried that.
    I can see from the workshop manual that there is a Diode in the loom.
    I am going to open the loom to try and find it maybe the Diode has burnt out.
    Any other suggestions?:confused:

    starter relay perhaps. sounds like the contacts are sticking during HIGH current (probably not your test condition).

    De-energize the starter relay when it's doing it... if the starter stops, it's upstream of that point. And the button most likely- but you seem to have eliminated that.

    also, post a picture of the starter relay.

    your 2013 is keyless, correct?

    did the problem start arbitrarily or after you did something to the electrics?
