Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
Replaced the starter, now the red ignition wire to the selenoid is not getting any power. Need help ASAP! No one here seems to know what the issue could be.
On your starter solenoid , looking at the schematics , you have a purple wire going to the "S" terminal (hot only in the start position) , and on the bigger stud/lug "B" terminal , you have a big red cable going straight to the battery and also on that same big stud/lug you have another smaller wire that is a fusible link to the altenator , so when you say the red wire to starter in not getting any power , are we talking about the big battery cable or the smaller purple wire ? if the purple wire is not hot in the start position , it goes from the starter "S" to the nuetral saftey switch and then to the ignition switch . we didn't put the fusible link wire on the "S" terminal and the purple on the "B" terminal did we ? this is getting long so i will stop here and wait for comment.
