Question about Cars & Trucks
Your problem was not detailed enough. You may check it electrically to see if it works, but may not solve your problem..If you are checking a starter to see if it can start a car, another story. Your answer, the positive terminal is the copper terminal with a washer and nut. The negative terminal, is the starter housing. A battery needs to be 10 volts charged to work properly. The electrical solenoid switch needs to activate for the starter to turn.
If you try to start a car with a #10 battery jumper, long cable, most likely will not work. This would faulsy indicate a bad starter.
There is a couple of ways that a starter won't work. Low battery, starter solenoid open, battery terminal corroded. other?
