Should be fairly easy. The wires with large ends go on the center stud with the cable from the battery, and the purple wire goes on the S terminal of the solenoid.

My starter went out in my 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette. I replace it with a brand new starter, without key in ignition the starter was winding as soon as I reconnected the battery. However, while doing...


You hooked it up wrong . Is there power at the purple wire all the time ?
ignition the starter was (winding ) ???as soon as I reconnected the battery. The starter cranks the engine !It's really called a cranking motor not starter . Do you know where that comes from ? Before electric starters you cranked the engine by hand . Suggest you take it to a qualified repair shop.

I have a 2008 ford escape 2wd 3.0 and i put a new starter on it and when i reconnect the battery the starter starts to wind and i don't have the key in the ignition. What did i do wrong?


there are two large bolt electrical terminals on most starters one has nothing on it ,thats where the battery wire hooks up + and the other (looks just like other one) has a small bent piece of metal that connects to starter under it's bolt that's Not where you hook battery , if you did hook it there the starter would run as soon as you hook up battery
ooh and the two bolts and anything connected to them can not touch each other or anything else
try looking at that

Replace starter


First, pull off the negative battery connection to avoid sparks or blown fuses.
Then remove the electrical connections from the starter. The big cable connection and the small wire to starter solenoid.
Now you can remove the starter mounting bolts. Some cars have 3 mount bolts, most have two. Watch for spacers or shims when you are pulling the bolts and removing the starter. With the bolts removed, the starter should be free to come out. Put in your new one and hook everything back up. Reconnect the negative battery post.

Turn key and get nothing. had starter rebuilt. still get nothing when turn key to start. used a tester light...got power to starter. but when hooked to wire that hooks to cylinoid, light doesn't light up...


When you rebuilt the starter if you didn't replace the solinoid that is probably the problem providing the wiring was reconnected correctly.

cb88b61.jpg Fig. Fig. 4: Exploded view of the starter motor mounting-2.0L engine
To install:
  1. Clean both surfaces of the starter motor flange and the rear plate. This is important since the starter grounds through its case and the transaxle flange to which it attached. Some remanufactured starters may have paint on these areas which should be cleaned off before installation. Install the starter motor onto the transaxle and secure with the retaining bolts. Tighten the bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  2. Attach the electrical harness connectors to the starter.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable and check the starter for proper operation.

2.0L SOHC Engine With Manual Transaxle
See Figures 4 and 5
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with a insulator grommet which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Remove the air cleaner resonator.
  3. Remove the positive battery cable retaining nut from the starter.
  4. Disconnect the positive battery cable and alternator output wire from the starter.
  5. Disconnect the push-on solenoid connector from the starter.
  6. Remove the 2 bolts that attach the starter to the transaxle.
  7. Remove the starter from the vehicle.

Clean all dirt and/or corrosion from the wire terminals before reconnecting the wiring to the solenoid.
  1. Reconnect the push-on solenoid connector to the starter.
  2. Reconnect the alternator output wire and positive battery cable to the starter and tighten the retaining nut to 90 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  3. Install the air cleaner resonator.
  4. Reconnect the negative battery cable.

2.0L SOHC Engine With Automatic Transaxle; 2.4L Engine

  2. Remove the air cleaner resonator.
  3. Remove the 3 bolts attaching the Transmission Control Module (TCM). Do not disconnect the TCM wiring. Move the TCM to gain access to the upper starter mounting bolt.
  4. Remove the upper starter mounting bolt.
  5. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  6. Remove the positive battery cable nut and disconnect the cable from the starter.
  7. Disconnect the push-on solenoid connector.
  8. Remove the lower mounting bolt that attaches the starter to the transaxle.

97 Grand Am electrical problem


If you hooked the small wires that are supposed to go on the big stud onto the small stud this will keep the starter activated. Also could have got a bad starter out of the box it happens.

Battery issue.....


look closely if there are wires hanging near the positive terminal of the battery.

you could have miss reconnecting one wire that is connected to your starter or the main cable itself is corroded and is not making a contact. that main cable is the one hooked to the starter.

Coil pack wireing


I just replaced my starter on my 6.0. There are three wires, one that comes directly from the starter itself about 3 inches that hooks onto the solenoid and then there is a smaller connecting wire to the solenoid and the big connector to the solenoid and that's it. The ground is right there on the block that is part of the starting harness too. I hope that helps. This is not a solution and I had no problem so I don't know what to classify this info as:)
