Question about Cars & Trucks
I am trying to install new ignition coil and am not sure which wire goes to which terminal on the coil. I have a black wire and a white wire...which one is positive and which is negative? Thanks...
Try turning the key to on, not start, then see which wire has battery voltage on it- use a test light or multi-meter- the wire with power goes to the positive terminal on the coil.

You may have the positive cable hooked in the wrong side of the starting selenoid or the starter selenoid is defective.
Follow the RED (+) cable from the battery, it goes to the starter selenoid wich has two terminals, change the cable to the other terminal, that should take care of the problem unless the selenoid is stuck on. Replacement runs about $15.
