Yeah, the "control unit" is some type of module. Not sure of it's complete purpose. I'll look into things this weekend, just too wore out when I get home. If the seat switch does work, I think tying it into the solenoid wire would stop any 'self-starting' issues.

I want to see where the A & B is going to at the moment. According to that diagram, I am unsure which wire is power to the switch, may be X.

If you use the seat switch for outside the intended purpose, two things come to mind:
One, the seat switch may not have enough current carry for the solenoid
Two, if it does, you will not want to use the original wires at all. Just add two new ones that put it inline on the solenoid wire.

I can't say what is going to the solenoid, so I'll keep this in mind when I get to it Alan!

Machines come to life, trucks, tractors and cars all running on their own as if they were alive.

I had an easier day so I hooked the battery back up & fired it off. Other than a BIG could of smoke and the alternator working overtime, all is well! I still plan to get something figured out so it doesn't do it again!

A battery disconnect is cheap and easy.

Just where to put it to be easy to use is the next question!

Got into the wiring today! The circuit for the seat switch, etc. had been jumpered. I wired in the seat switch and you have to sit in it before the starter will work!

I imagine that if you check you will find that this is covered under one of the many recent GM recalls. They're issuing recalls for everything else. :bigrofl:

Guess it's time go for the battery disconnect as it did it again. The seat was in the propped up position, so it's not in the switch. Something is getting power to the solenoid during a hard rain.

Decided to try something different. The solenoid wire is a spade connector on the starter, so I am just going to unhook it for now to see if it tries this again.
