Corroded at the battery I guess..or the entire wire..these come in certain lengths but I guess you will need about 4 ft or longer it goes from the battery positive (red cable) all the way to the big top stud on the starter solenoid which is above the starter..black cable(negative) goes between the battery negative and the engine block either on the alternator top bracket or some metal spot toconnect to.. the starter has a secondary wire which will activate the starter with the key switch and it is usually a brown wire with an eye on the end with a smaller stud nut to connect to the solenoid..good luck

SOURCE: Wiring Diagram 1998 Chevy S-10 starter replacement

The starter has one large cable from the battery positive, and a wire that goes to the solenoid (Part of the starter) that becomes hot when the key ignition is turned to start. This also passes through the neutral safety switch. (So it wont start in gear) Not sure if this is what you need, a little vague.

READ THIS ALL BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING
NOTE: some vehicles have the starter relay and starter mounted together as 1 unit. Sometimes the starter relay and starter are seperate. When I refer to "relay" it could also mean the starter and relay as 1 unit.
Note: "starter switch" is not to be confused with "key switch", although sometimes they are all one unit. The starter switch is usually mounted on the steering column and actuated by a metal rod. On units that are all one unit, the keyswitch/starter switch (both one unit) will have to be replaced. (this is a rare problem, so don't get worried just yet)
1. Check battery voltage, should be between 12.5-14.5 volts. if low voltage replace or charge battery, and try to start car, if it don't crank with new or charged battery, move on.
2. Check connections on the starter relay, even the small one coming from your starter switch. if loose or corroded, clean with a brush and reconnect them. Try to start your car. Did it start? if not, Move on
3. Well now we know the connections aren't the problem. How about a click? did you hear one? If a click is heard, go to #4, if nothing is heard, go to #5
4. Well at least the relay is clicking, but nothing else is going on. The relay is working, so the starter must be bad. Replace the starter and start your car!
5. Humm, connections aren't the problem, maybe the relay is bad, replace your relay with a new one. Move on
6. Now we have a new relay, with clean and tight connections. Start your car. Does it start? If yes, then HORRAY! we fixed it. Does it click? If so then goto #7, If it don't click, then goto #8
7. So here we have a new relay, with good connections that will click when trying to start the car, but nothing else happens. Starter is faulty, replace the starter, and off you go, see ya!
8. So here we have a new relay, with good connections, but it still won't click when we try to start our car. This means that your starter switch is faulty. Replace starter switch and try to start your car. Vroom! finally done with this car problem!
List of shortcuts: if you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the relay and apply +12v to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. You can actually hook up a starter button this way. If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken.

Starter problem. Make sure your connections to the starter are tight, both the battery cable and the starter solenoid wire. Will probably have to take starter off and have it tested.

Son's 2001 jeep grand cherokee V8, he just bought it with 110000 miles, and now it clicks but won't start. It has battery power, all lights work and did start once. I assume we need a new starter and...


Just because the lights work does not ensure that the battery is good. To be sure that the battery is good it should be load tested. Most auto parts stores will do this for free, it could save you the trouble and expense of replacing the starter.

Also thouroughly inspect the cables/connectors, make sure they aren't corroded or damage.

This is the starter replacement procedure.

  1. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Starter mounting bolts
    • Starter solenoid harness connections
    • Starter
    To install:
  2. Connect the starter solenoid wiring connectors.
  3. Install the starter and tighten the bolts to the following specifications:
    • 2.5L engine: 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm)
    • 4.0L engine: Upper bolt to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) and lower bolt to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm)
    • 4.7L engine: 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm)
    • 5.2L and 5.9L engines: 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm)
  4. Install the negative battery cable and check for proper operation.

How do the wires go on the solenoid on a 94


Most starters have one large wire ( the same size that goes to the positive side of the starter) and another wire (which is smaller) that goes to the ignition switch and only receives power when the key is in the crank position. So if those two wires end up touching each other somehow, then that is exactly what would happen. When you connect the battery terminals the starter will engage and try to start. Originally I don't know why you replaced the solenoid, but a cracked electrical portion of the ignition switch will do the same thing. So what I am saying is if you replaced your old solenoid because it burned out, there is always that possibility that your ignition switch was faulty and burned it out. Good Luck. Hope this was a little helpful.

Im trying to locate the starter for 1994 jeep grand cherokee , see if its easy to replace, and also the location of the starter relay


starter relay is in power distribution center near battery. don't know which engine you have, but if you flollow the positive cable on the battery, it will lead you to the starter. Most are not difficult to replace, depends on how much experience you have. One tip...dont overtighten wire connections on starter the solenoid cover is plastic and can break.
