There should be wire from the solenoid to the starter, usually a black earth cable, one from solenoid to positive from battery, and one to the ignition(a signal wire) there really are only the two possible connections once you have the solenoid's earth connected to the starter. Good luck mate, hope that helps!

I replaced the starter on a 1999 Chev Cavilier but when I went to start the car the starter kept trying to start the car even though the car was already running. I think i may have crossed one or a couple...


hi, i think you have put the MAIN HEAVY CABLE direct to the STARTER MOTOR on the SOLINOID. this will keep the starter motor running. take battery lead NEGATIVE CABLE OFF the BATTERY, and change the MAIN HEAVY CABLE from the SOLINOID terminal to the other MAIN terminal on the SOLINOID and NORMALLY it SHOULD go with a SLIGHTY (smaller cable this GO'S to the FUSEBOX rest of car POSITIVE FEED). the other small wire is the solinoid START WIRE. the solinoid has 2 circuits the first circuit is HEAVY BATTERY LEAD to 1 terminal on the solinoid. the other side of the solinoid HEAVY CABLE to STARTER MOTOR. this is only 1 side of the SOLINOID (THIS IS A VERY VERY HEAVY SWITCH). the other side of the SOLINOID is the START SIDE (REMOTE CONTACT) of the SOLINOID, by turning the IGNITION KEY to STARTER POSITION, this operates the SOLINOID. this makes contact to run the starter motor. once the connections are done REPLACE NAGATIVE BATTERY LEAD and start the car. gerry

There is only one wire common to the alternator and starter and this is the main+ wire which goes from the alternator down to the main feed terminal of the starter solenoid from there it runs to the battery + terminal.If you are replacing the cable use one of the same diameter......

1990 Nissan Pathfinder starter issues


MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FIRST! The starter is mounted on the right lower side of the engine. If you have a 4X4 it will be much tougher to get to. The wire are mounted on the top on the starter. There is one small wire that simply clips on and then there is the big fat battery cable that is held on with a 12mm nut.

STARTER SOLINOID 90 F 150


Cupwalker
There should be 2 wires going to the starter/solenoid. One should be a big heavy duty type battery type
wire and the other should be a smaller wire. The large wire goes to the larger of the two lugs. This lug will have a large nut maybe 7/16 size. The smaller wire goes on the smaller lug.
Be sure the ground terminal of the battery is disconnected before you do any connecting
wires.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS Please give me a rating if appropriate Thks
