SOURCE: my starter
disconnect the negative terminal on the battery. Then disconnect both wires on the starter/solenoid
One of these wires is a big one that comes from the battery. It is probably a red wire and about the size of the wires that connect to the battery. The big wire goes to the larger terminal on the solenoid/starter.
This terminal has a larger nut that goes on the post. Hook this big wire to the big terminal. Now touch the negative battery wire to the - post of the battery. Just touch it, do not clamp it on. There should be no sparks when you do this, OK, now be sure this battery wire is NOT connected to the - battery post.
Now connect the smaller wire of the starter/solenoid to the smaller terminal on the solenoid. Put the nut on and tighten. Now, go back and TOUCH the battery ground wire to the - post of the battery. Again there should be no sparks. at this point you should be connected correctly.
Let me know how it comes out Loringh

Today 11-12-08 my 2003 H2 Hummer would not start. Checked battery it ischarged. Cables tight. Tried to start with portable booster pak. No go. Tridto jump start with my wife's Suburban. Still no go.
When I turn the switch I hear a single click and that is it. No engine turning over. While trying to start with key the headlights go out. Out of ideas, Will take to Chevy garage in am. Will post solution.

Your ignition switch is probably defective and will have to be replaced-the starter solenoid was attached to the starter you installed, correct? If so, it has to be the switch...

You most likely have a short in the wiring to the starter.
Last time I saw something like that a vehicle's exhaust headers created heat which eventually melted the wire's insulation and several of the wires were exposed and shorting on each other and the ground of the vehicle. If possible, get the car on a lift and inspect your starters wiring....
Hope this helps...
