The fourth one might be the ground that the bolt goes threw when you put it in the bell housing to tighten if it is a small plug in type that would be a sign plugs to solenoid on starter hard to say with out physically seeing it hip that helps.

How do the wires go on an 03 chevy cavaliers starter


the wiring diagram is to technical. basically the small eyelet wire goes on the little nut you took off and the big eyelet wires go on the big nut with the batt cable wire. this should be all the wires that were on the starter. make sure the little wire doesnt touch the big wires or when you hook up the battery it will try to crank by it self. hope this helps

HOW TO INSTALL A 2001 CHEVY MALIBU STARTER


Disconnect negative battery terminal, raise vehicle,remove splash sheild, if equipped. take wires off of solenoid on starter, remove starter mounting bolts, remember not to mix up wires!! --to install--put starter back in vehicle put in bolts,hook up wires, then replace cable back on battery.Locate the starter, it goes into the bellhousing of the transmission, that is where the engine and tranny meet. Easiest way is follow the wires coming from the positive battery post. It will be a big one. There are usually only two bolts holding it on. But first remove the wires going into it. Be careful with the main one coming from the battery, it is not fused and if grounded long enough will blow your battery up. Check out.Thanks.

Hi, I have a 1994 Chevy Cavalier with the 2.2L 4Cyl Engine. We bought it off a private owner and it was running good. We went to autozone to get a new fuel injector because one was leaking, we replaced...


The smaller wires that hook to the big post on the solenoid. These are fusable link wires. It sounds like one is burnt or not hooked up. These feed all the power to the car. Did you hook the grounds to the top of the starter bolt?

How to replace a 2005 chevy cavalier starter?


First disconnect the ground (-) post on your battery then you will need to raise your car off the ground high enough to get under it to remove the starter you do not need to lift the engine it has two bolts holding the starter to the engine they will be near the trans at the head of the starter .
Disconnect the wires with a 8mm wrench and a 13mm wrench then remove the bolts holding the starter.
It sounds like the solenoid has gone bad which is on the starter
once you have gotten the starter replaced go to your nearest chevy dealer there may be a open recall to have a relay installed in the wiring to your starter to prevent the solenoid from burning out again
Hope this helps you and good luck.
