Question about 2000 Pontiac Montana
I am helping out a full family replace their starter on their Pontiac Montana mini-van. After replacing the old starter with a brand new after market Hitachi starter and checking relays and replacing the battery- the vehicle still won't start. Solenoid clicks when turnned on. But nothing else.
Is it pssible that I may have crossed wires on the solenoid? The starter solenoid has two possible places for the power wires to go- there are four in total... (and after taking the old one out I swear that they all came off the same studd. The smaller purple one is a given as it is the only other small wire matching up to the smaller studd.
All 4 power wires go together on the large center stud on the solenoid.
The purple wire goes on the small stud.
The purple wire supplys the trigger signal when the key is turned to the start position.Since your solenoid is clicking when the key is turned to start this is working properly.
I would check battery connections and then check power connections on solenoid again.Make sure all connections are clean and tight.
