The large wire should go from the starter to the battery.

SOURCE: need to change starter

Should be under the engine on the passenger side of the engine right next to the transmission. It is about the size of large size juice can, is normally black with a smaller rounded thing with wires attatched called the soinoid. Most ford soiniods have an unplug plastic connection. You need to unhook all wires, and I think this starter has two bolts while a few have 3. Dont know which engine you have, so I am just giving you the general information. You will need tools like sockets, socket extension, rachet, a hand wrench set will also maybe come in handy as well as a couple of screwdrivers like at least one of each. Normally you will need to jack up and block the car up and put on jackstand as well as setting the brake, putting in park, and blocking all wheels also. You can look on the autozone website in the repair section to help, and you can also buy a complete starter from the parts house which will tell you the bolt locations, what it looks like, etc. hope this helps you, rick

1994 mercury grand marquis wont start even with a jump start there is nothing from the starter not even a sound.

Let's see if it is the solenoid, the starter, or the wiring. Let's start wit the wiring. Hook a small jumper wire to the big, fat terminal where the battery cable attaches to the starter solenoid. Touch it quickly to a ground and see if there is a spark. Better yet, find an old light bulb like a headlight that works, and use that for your tester. You should have juice to that big teminal on the starter. If it does, next go to the small wire on the starter solenoid that comes from the ignition switch. That wire should have juice only when you turn the key to start, no other time.
Supposing both of those do right, that indicates the problem is in the solenoid or starter.
You must remove the starter and dis-assemble it to see what is wrong, unless you choose to replace it with a new or used one.
The two most common causes of your type problem are burnt contacts inside the solenoid,or used-up carbon brushes inside the starter. Sometimes the armature is toasted inside also.
If the solenoid is only medium burnt, I have used sandpaper to clean contacts sometimes. Starter worn parts must be replaced. A shop should be able to test them for you.

Battery terminal does this come from starter to battery or the the black box next to battery?

the positive battery cable goes to the starter and the black box.there are some other wires involved with the pos cable. if your trying to replace it with a generic cable you cause more problems down the road than its worth.get a factory one at the dealer it will be easier to install and wont create problems

Intermittent starting problem. Turning key does nothing.

Sounds like you could have a faulty switch, but I would check the starter selenoid first. Sometimes when the selenoid goes bad it will behave in the way you describe. If, with your key in the on position, (not on start), you can jump power from the hot wire, (positive), post on your selenoid to the hot wire that goes from the selenoid to the starter and the starter then engages, but doesn't otherwise, it is a selenoid problem. Good Luck! I hope you find this very helpful!

I need to replace the starter in my 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Do you have any how-to instructions?

Most starters are basically the same. Under the vehicle, mounted just in front of the oil pan, is the starter. It is secured to the engine drive wheel with three mounting bolts and has three terminals that connect to the engine wiring in the back. Disconnect and label the three wires, then remove the mounting bolts. Pull the starter carefully away from the engine and down. You may have a red plastic clip on the back that covers one of the wire terminals as well-this just pulls off. Installation is the reverse of removal (though it's easier to mount the starter then connect wiring). Just make sure you disconnect the negative battery terminal so as to not allow the starter to kick over the engine while you're working.

1998 cavalier, ignition wire to selonoid is not getting power

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.

Battery is fine, but engine wont turn over

Get under the front of the car and tap with a small tool like a wrench on the starter. The larger round cylendre with wires going to it. Don't touch the wires though, or you will short out the battery.
If it starts, it is probebly the starter or selenoid on the starter.
