Question about 1988 Ford Thunderbird
WHAT CABLES DO I INSTALL ON THE SOLENOID TO HAVE IT INSTALL PROPERLY
Hi! I presume your solenoid is the one on top of the starter motor? and you possibly have it off the vehicle? if the solenoid is seperate from the starter and you are looking at it face on?(This should work for both) Disconnect the Negative - pole battery lug and make sure it can't touch the terminal of the battery. Follow the Positive + heavy cable to the solenoid right hand lug/terminal & connect the other lug/terminal is to starter, there should be a small possibly Black/white wire with a female spade connection this goes to the Male spade on the solenoid. To be safe and in case the heavy cables to and from battery/starter/solenoid being in contact where they shouldn't be just touch lightly the Negative- Battery lug with the heavy Negative battery cable, if all is well there shouldn't be any flashing/arcing however if you are running a immobiliser/alarm this might go off & show as light spark at thge terminal so be prepared. It can take you unawares
Good luck! I hope this helped,
