The large red cable goes to the large stud which is from the battery and the purple wire goes to the stud marked s for switch and if you have a brown wire it will go to the stud marked r for relay.

I have a 93 ford f150. I'm switching the starter from one with a selenoid to no selenoid. Having major problems. Can you help

Use a Ford remote starter solenoid, here is a Standard brand part number and where to order it cheap.

Below is a simple wiring diagram of a remote starter solenoid, since you say the new starter will not have a solenoid hook directly to the starter B+ battery post. Mount the remote solenoid as close as possible to the starter, use bulk battery cable or see if they sell it in made up sizes of different lengths. Use the right color cable which is red (B+)

This is the part you need..
Below is a picture o the Ford solenoid you need.

Starter spins correctly when I hook pos to neg and neg to pos

Sounds like someone has changed the starter recently and they have the negative cable from the battery hooked up to the starter solenoid. You need to have the positive cable hooked to the starter solenoid not the negative cable.

How to replace starter motor

Remove the battery connection ground, lift the vehicle with a jack on the side starter is on and block the under the frame for safety, take the starter cable off the solenoid and remove the starter wire from solenoid, remove the bolts holding the starter on and drop the starter out. This starter is not heavy, but it will be over your head so don't drop it. Replace the starter in this same way by putting the new starter in and tightening the bolts, then hook the starter wire back on the small stud on solenoid and the cable to the large stud. Let it down on it's tires and hook the battery back up and your done.

Truck will not start how can i tell if its a starter or selonoid

does it spin real fast without clanging and grinding against the flywheel? if so then its probably the solenoid bad. do you have to hit the starter with a hammer then it works? it is probably bad brushes or a worn motor. eather way i think you can only get a new starter and solenoid together not sold seperate. check for bad battery cables (loose).

2 things can be wrong here. One- the positive cable at the battery is bad, or two, the solenoid on the starter is bad. and that's a starter change.

Where is the starter solenoid located on a 1991 mazda mpv

  1. Remove the starter from the truck.
  2. Disconnect the field strap from the solenoid terminal.
  3. Remove the two solenoid attaching screws.
  4. Disengage the solenoid plunger from the shift fork and remove the solenoid.
  5. Install the solenoid on the drive end housing, making sure that the solenoid plunger hook is engaged with the shift fork.
  6. Apply 12v to the solenoid S terminal and measure the clearance between the starter drive and the stop-ring retainer. It should be 2.0-5.0mm (0.0787-0.1969 in.). If not, remove the solenoid and adjust the clearance by inserting an adjusting shim between the solenoid body and drive end housing.
  7. Check the solenoid for proper operation and install the starter.
  8. Check the operation of the starter.

It is number 1, bottom right hand corner of this picture....

If it does not open, please let me know.
