I have a 1998 Plymouth breeze that won't start.


Hello! I would suggest having a look at the Brown wire that connects to the starter solenoid...It may be touching chassis ground...Also check the Large Red lead that attaches to the starter...One or both are touching chassis ground...If the Red lead is against ground it will not blow a fuse, in that it is connected directly to battery...And give the systoms that you have...Guru...saailer

1998 Plymouth Breeze 2.0L Starter install: I tried installing a new starter in my car and i have 2 cords and a sensor. I know where the sensor and the cord with the Shroud on it go. There are 2 bolts on...



  • See the diagram below for a visual of your starter installed.
  • The alternator wire goes on top of the battery cable just like it sounds like you did. If something sparked you might have a loose connection from the starter install. The sparks mean there was a real bad direct short somewhere. You will have to look and find it. Remove the negative battery cable until your reinspect your job.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. If equipped with A/C, perform the following:
    1. Use a floor or jack stand to securely support the engine and transaxle assembly so they will not rotate.
    2. Remove the front engine mount bolt from the insulator and front crossmember mounting bracket.

Fig. Fig. 7: If equipped with A/C, unfasten the front engine mount-to-bracket bolt


Carefully lower the front of the engine, rotating the engine forward allowing more space for easier access to the starter.
For easier removal, do not remove the wiring from the starter at this time.

  1. Remove the 2 starter motor-to-transmission housing mounting bolts.
  2. Remove the starter and solenoid assembly from the transmission housing. Position the starter accordingly for access to the wiring.
  3. Remove the positive battery cable nut and remove the positive battery and alternator output wire from the starter. The wiring is shown in the accompanying figure.

Fig. Fig. 8: Location of the starter wiring connections

  1. Detach the push-on solenoid connector. Pull back on the slide and push down on the rear tab to release the lock.
  2. Position the starter vertically so the pinion end faces downward, then remove the starter motor through the bottom of the vehicle. It may be necessary to move the A/C lines aside slightly to maneuver the starter out of the vehicle.

To install:
Clean the corrosion and dirt from the cable and wire terminals before fastening the wiring to the solenoid.
  1. Connect the positive battery and alternator output wire to the starter solenoid post.
WARNING It is imperative that the alternator output terminal be connected to the positive battery terminal of the starter solenoid for proper starting and charging system operation.

  1. Connect the push-on wiring until it is fully engaged.
  2. Position the starter face into the transmission housing. Support the starter in the pilot and start the top bolt.
  3. Attach the ground cable to the lower mounting bolt and start the bolt.
  4. Make sure the starter is aligned properly before tightening the mounting bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  5. If equipped with A/C, perform the following:
    1. Using a floor jack to carefully raise the engine and transaxle assembly to its original position.
    2. Install the front engine mount bolt through the insulator and front crossmember mounting bracket. Tighten the bolt to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).

  6. Carefully lower the vehicle, then connect the negative battery cable.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disconnect the starter motor electrical connections.
  3. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts and remove the starter.


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.

How do you remove the starter from a 1999 Plymouth Breeze


On a 2.0 unhook the wires from the back of the starter then there are 2 bolts that go through the nose cone of the starter into the block, you remove those 2 bolts and the starter will fall out.

My ignition fuse keeps blowing every time i start the car


Check the power wiring running to the starter for exposed wire or loose insulation. I've run into the same thing on a few Chrysler vehicles where the insulation on the starter wire just melts off and blows fuses like crazy
