According to my wiring diagram, you should only have one small wire which is purple. That wire goes on the R or S terminal. The I terminal was used for cars with point system ignition before electronic ignition.
The purple wire should be hot when the key switch is in the start position.

can you hear the starter spin faintly when you jump it? like if the solenoid wasn't engaging into the flywheel? other than that i think you got everything covered.... did they load test the starter or just put power to it and spin it up? also make sure the copper wire from the main lug on the starter to the brushes inside the starter is not damaged or missing.. take some jumper cables and hook them to your battery and then directly to the starter and see if it spins it up if not try that with a different battery,, if still no go buy a new starter it may not be performing under heavy load good luck please rate -jeff

SOURCE: i have a 2000 pontiac grand am 2.4 liter 2 door.

It is the solenoid.
The solenoid is also the ignition relay switch.
GM cars used to have an ignition relay switch in addition to the solenoid. Now both are in the same unit.... the solenoid.

Starter problem


wiring to the starter; large cable coming from the battery to the
large post on the starter is direct current, hot at all times. there are two small wires that connect to the solenoid, one comes from the ignition.
Look for loose connection especially ground. If you jumper the connection on the solenoid to the large connection on the battery and it starts, I would suspect fault in the ignition circuit...

What wire go where on 1980 F 150 4.9 starter


I have provided an image that will assist you and it will connect like so;

1. Connection 1 should have the Pos. (+) battery cable and all of the wires with the large eyelet connectors from the wiring harness connected to it, except for the large cable that runs down to the starter.

2. Connection 2 should only have the large cable going down to the starter connected to it, and there should be no other wire connected there.

3. Connection 3 is the "S" terminal on the starter solenoid, and it is the wire with the small push on connector that is hot only when the key is in the "start" position, usually it is a red wire with a blue stripe, but that is not always the case.

4. Connection 4 is the "I" connection on the starter solenoid and it feeds current back into the ignition, and it is not used on a lot of vehicles after 1981, but if your vehicle has it it will be a small push on connector that will not have any power from it at all, and it will usually be a black wire with a white stripe, but that is not always so.
