1994 Grand am starter Wired wrong

I need a wiring diagram for the starter. I dont have a ground wire hooked up, and I might have it hooked up wrong. Ive looked on Autozone for the starter wiring they show but it doesnt help much.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Then would there be a reason that my cars not getting power? Battery has a good charge Its refurbrished from autozone. I took it in and had them test the charge. No dinging from opening the door or lights turning on. I took the A/C compressor outta the car and put in a by-pass pulley. Would the Wires not being connected to the A/C compressor cause the problem?

    Thank you for fast responces

    Don't know about 1994 but my 1997 2.4L has a ground wire. Does anyone know where the large red wire connected to the larger terminal is supposed to go?

The smaller wires that hook to the big post on the solenoid. These are fusable link wires. It sounds like one is burnt or not hooked up. These feed all the power to the car. Did you hook the grounds to the top of the starter bolt?

Need to hook up wiring harness for boat trailer. conector has been cut from ford explorer 94 4x4. dont know which wires need to be wired together.

the best way is with the use of a test light and find a good ground for one end and use the other to find your signals with the key on so to ensure power to the wires themselves and then with a 2 x 4 ahainst the seat propped the brake or assistance if available and find them as well also backup lights with the tire chucked so it dont roll on you find these as well by connecting via the diagram that the new harness came with or if none is available connect them until they are correctly working order then secure them should have a quick disconnect coupler with it so you may remove it for future use
