So....

When the key is in the on position, car in neutral (manual) and you push the clutch in, the starter fires and runs engaged....

As soon as you let the clutch out the starter stops

so to start the car you only need to flick to on and push the clutch
but when you try rive it throws the starter on when changing gears and makes a **** of a racket!

Hopefully is has not stripped ring gear but i will check that soon.

Anyone herd of this happening? or know what it maybe?

Sounds like the issue is with the ignition switch
Having the key in the on position seems to be the same as in the start position
And since the clutch needs to be depressed in order for the starter to engage,
It causes this starter engaging every time you want to shift gears.

I would start by looking into a schematic and see which wires may be shorted??

I had not thought of the ignition switch- thanks

I will crack it open tomorrow and see if there are issues obvious....

Don't know if the wires are shorted or the ignition switch is the problem
Testing ... testing ... testing ....

On my old 2001 Elantra, I replaced the ignition switch.
Not the cylinder lock. The ignition switch was about $20 for my car.
So, when there was an issue with starting, I replaced it.
Did cost much and the whole thing took less than an hour.

So i tested the switch according to the manual and when i had continuity between the 3 posts i should have for the switch being in 'on' position, i also have continuity on the start post....

Not 100% but i am grabbing a new switch as i would assume that the start post should only have continuity when the switch turns to the start position (which is not fixed- springs back once you let go)

Keep everyone posted- next week due to delayed shipping where we live

Hi all,

Just to close out this post, thank you to all the above.

I can confirm the ignition switch was the issue.

For anyone in the future having an issue of the starter motor going when you depress the clutch, head straight to your ignition switch and follow the continuity check (with a multi meter) as per the repair manual. Mine had continuity to the start post when it was in the on position..... Replaced and now like new again!

Thanks again
