Question about 1996 Volvo 850
I replaced a bad starter. When I attempt to attach the battery I get power to starter and will engage the starter. Don't know if I have the cables crossed. There are 4 total wires. 3 go (I think) to one side of the the starter and their is one the is slips on.
You have definately crossed the wires. We all do it at one time, or another.
Just call your local dealer, and tell them you tried, and made a mistake. Most dealers/garages will tell you how to fix the error without charge.
Small hint...when you deal with more then two obvious wires, use some tape to identify the wires...saves alot of going back and fixing tie.
Thanks for letting us at FixYa.com help...Happy New Year
