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

SOURCE: turn key and get nothing.

When you rebuilt the starter if you didn't replace the solinoid that is probably the problem providing the wiring was reconnected correctly.

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...

05 cobalt. replaced starter and battery. starter solenoid spins but does not engage starter. head lights dim also when trying to start.


If the lights dim when the engine is trying to start, then the battery is not fully charged.

If the battery is not fully charged there is not enough speed to make the bendix on the starter slide out under centrifugal pressure and engage the ring on the flywheel.

Put the battery on a proper battery charger overnight. Also make sure the battery terminals as clean and tight, plus the negative strap to the body and the positive lead wherever it goes to.

Incidentally, the starter solenoid is not what you think it is as it doesn't 'spin'. It is an electrical relay used to take the massive amps needed to turn the motor from the battery to the starter without burning out the wiring to the ignition switch and the ignition switch itself. You mean the 'starter spins'.

I have a 1977 ford f100 when I turn it over it just clicks have replaced the battery starter solenoid alternator and when it done that I hooked up jumper cables and the truck tried to crank by itself


Bad battery - weak due to bad cell OR
1st choice: Loose or corroded battery cables or broken cables -- insufficient or no power to starter or ignition system,
2nd choice: battery solenoid (mounted on fender liner) faulty or loose/broken connection,
3rd choice: actual ignition switch (under dash by steering column broken)(not where the key goes),

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).

I just installed a new starter on my 1992 camaro when i try to hook up the battery cables the starter automatically starts turning over?


The wires on the solenoid must be backwards. There is one single wire from the ignition to the solenoid, then one wire from solenoid to starter, and from starter itself to the battery cable.

Starter will not disengage - possible ignition problem


Also your ignition switch could be sticking in the start position. common problem. If it stops when you put the car in drive or reverse gears then its something with your ignition switch.
