The field wire to the starter has a small eyelet connector that connects to the small terminal on the starter solenoid (sometimes marked "S").

All other wires have a large eyelet connector and they are all connected together with the battery cable to the large terminal on the starter solenoid (sometimes marked "BAT").

Sometimes the field wire to the starter is a push on type connector, and there would only be one obvious terminal on the starter solenoid that it could be connected to.

The battery cable goes on the large post nearest the battery,and all others,except for one small wire made to fit the small terminal.The cable going to the starter goes on the large post on the other side of where you put the battery cable on,the opposite side

SOURCE: I picked up a 1988 Ford F150 6cy and the starter solenoid missing

I have provided an image that will assist you and it will connect like so;

1. Connection 1 should have the Pos. (+) battery cable and all of the wires with the large eyelet connectors from the wiring harness connected to it, except for the large cable that runs down to the starter.

2. Connection 2 should only have the large cable going down to the starter connected to it, and there should be no other wire connected there.

3. Connection 3 is the "S" terminal on the starter solenoid, and it is the wire with the small push on connector that is hot only when the key is in the "start" position, usually it is a red wire with a blue stripe, but that is not always the case.

4. Connection 4 is the "I" connection on the starter solenoid and it feeds current back into the ignition, and it is not used on a lot of vehicles after 1981, but if your vehicle has it it will be a small push on connector that will not have any power from it at all, and it will usually be a black wire with a white stripe, but that is not always so.

Have a 1997 ford escort 2.0l No sound when I engage the starter, it happened about 6 months ago. But started working again. Not sure if it's starter or solenoid, or both??


I would check all the cables and connections on the battery and the starter for corrosion or looseness. The solenoid is mounted on the starter. I would have the starter tested, most parts stores can test the starter and solenoid for you for free. I would also check to see if you are getting power from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid when the key is turned to the starting postion.

If this is the starter solenoid, the two large wires go on the bigger posts, one from battery and the other to the starter. The smaller wires go on the smaller posts. One from the ignition switch and the other to ground.

There are a few things to look at, one would be the ground wire, if this is tight and I assume it is by your posting, the next thing to do is place the vehicle in neutral and attempt to start the car. If it starts, that is the neutral safety switch. The vehicle should start with no problem after that. If not, please let me know and I will help you further.

No power to starter soleniod from ignition


As the ignition switch provides the low current power for the starter solenoid you need to hook a 12v tester up and trace the wiring backwards after checking for blown fuses

Will the starter solenoid activate if you hot wire it to the battery ?

Under the hood on the passenger fire wall you will see the starter solenoid.Unplug the small wire running to it and see if your problem goes away.If it does problem is ignition switch if it does not then tap the solenoid and see if it quits.If this takes care of it then solenoid is bad.

When you turn the key, get a clicking noise and no engine cranking, the clicking noise is normally the solenoid. The solenoid is a heavy duty relay that applies 12 volts to the starter. In most cases the solenoid is mounted physically on the starter. If you got a remote starter at the auto parts store you can
hook it up to the solenoid directly and push a button on the remote starer , (which takes the place of the ignition switch) and see if the engine cranks


Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh
