Question about Cars & Trucks
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

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.
