Don't know how to install a 1989 GMC Safari starter

I just dismount the damaged one and buy the new one but I can't remember the wiring. I do know the positive coming from the batery but I have 2 united thin cables that I don't know where they go.

Can you please help me?

thanks in advance!

    OK sorry, now I see that we are working on the starter.
    Of course they should go the cylinoid switch which you would normally transfer from the old starter if the new one did not come with it.

Thank you Fixya Team! and special thanks to gsno314 who took a time to see to my problem!

I just connected the cables coming from the switch to the selenoide and it worked, I just got confused becouse a similar plug was in the starter itself.

thanks to all of you!

How do I run the poistive battery cable down to the starter on my 2000 GMC Safari ?

First, try adding details about your problem !!!!! second, connect to the starter and only after it is secured, then connect to battery, try buying an in-line fused wire to protect the battery if you mess up, fuses are cheaper than batteries!!!! eating KFC while driving can cause hands to slip and result in an accident-don't do it!!

  1. dissconnect the negitive battery terminal.
  2. raise van and support with stands.
  3. remove the two bolts on the starter and pull it out and down,
  4. the starter dropped as far as it will go this way you have room to remove the wires from the starter.
  5. reverse directions to install new one, NOTE; if more room is needed you will have to remove the metal flywheel cover, hope this is helpful.

I would like to know how I can replace the starter in my 1991 GMC Safari van step by step instrutions would be very helpful.

Disconnect your negetive battery cable at the battery,Under the passenger side front of your van right rear side of the engine is where the starter is located at.Remove the 2 big bolts holding starter to the block(hold onto the starter as you remove the last bolt so starter doesn't fall and rip wires)Then lower starter enough to access the battery feed wire and the solenoid wire(small wire for the solenoid supply) The big bolts are either 15mm or 9/16 the battery supply wire at the solenoid is usually 13mm and the small wire is usually 5/16 reverse the pro ceedure to install.

Install a digital outside temp gauge

To wire in a digital temp into your current system would require a lot of patience and schematics i dont even know where to begin to look for. It would be fastest and cheapest to buy the digital temp gauge and mount it on your dash board.
