Question about 1996 Pontiac Sunfire
I just bought a 1996 pontiac sunfire se and the wires going to the starter are all cut and re connected with different wires and the car wont start with the key but if i jump it off the solinoid or bridge the relay it will what do you think the problem is and what wires are supposed to go to the starter
There should be a large battery cable red going to the large terminal of the solenoid, another thin wire going to the flat blade connector which should go to the starter switch, The way to test the wires to find out which one is the ignition switch wire is to get someone to sit in the car and turn the ignition key as if to start it and you can use a simple test light to see which one goes on and off as the ignition switch is turned on and off.
There should be another wire that connects to the same terminal as the battery cable which goes to the altenator, about twice the size as the small wire is. If there are any more wires I am not sure where they will go to.
Hope that works for you
