I have a 2004 AC 400 4x4. Latly the starter continues to turn over with the ignition in the off position. The only way to stop it is to disconnect the battery. The 1st time it did this I checked the starter button, the starter, the solinoid and all tested good. After putting it back together, it worked for 3 months. This morning it occurred again. A body have any ideas.

If your starter button is not sticking, I suspect it's the start relay itself. The primary contacts are probably
getting old and corroded and sticking closed when energized. Try a new relay.

At times, back EMF causes the problem.
Solution: install a diode on the solenoid or purchase a solenoid that has the diode installed.
