??? Keeps revving? Do you mean the starter keeps spinning? Wires get hot? Which wires? Changes wiring - how so? Need more info.

I had a "mystery" issue with my starter recently - the starter kept spinning after the motor started (solonoid would not disengage)... For some reason, which I can't explain, I had to put on 3 different (new) solonoids before the problem went away.
