Follow heavy wires from battery down to starter underneath engine on one side. Right in the front, by the transmission. You will need to get down on the ground in front of your car and look up to the transmission, you will see it. It can be from driver or passenger side. Good Luck.
P.s. If this doesnot work, go add you car
and find the starter at repair info engine starting system

I have a 1998 Pontiac grand am replaced starter

if your getting a clicking noise at the starter double check for good connections at the starter and grounds as well as the ground wire from the battery to engine. if this is good check the battery condition and load tested. if the battery checks good then you may have just gotten a bad starter.

The starter is bad. Solenoid is good, the starter itself is bad. You can remove it and take it to Schuck's/Chief's/Kragen/NAPA, they will test it for FREE. You can't beat free!!!

The best way to find the starter would be to follow your red battery cable down and thats where it is.

Possibly a starter problem or solenoid problem. Car won't turn over on occasion, just clicks. Other times, works just fine. Maybe bad wiring? Just a little confused. Battery is strong, so is the...

A solenoid is attached to the starter. You can bypass it with a crappy screwdriver. Just remember it will ruin the screwdriver. Just short across the big wire from the battery to the smallest wire on the starter. Should be rather close together. This will confirm that you need a starter. I'm a mechanic and I drive a 91 Grand Am so I can walk you through whatever repair or bypass you can think of.

Jeep doesn't start

I would suggest the starter. The brushes in the starter tend to go bad over time and you may be hitting a dead spot in the starter when cranking it. Another indication that the starter could be a problem would be the engine is cranking over slower.
