There are two large terminals One terminal will be just a nut on a bolt and the other will have a wire under the nut that goes down into the starter. The batter wire goes on the one that just has the nut. If you put it on the other one the starter will spin immediately as you are supplying power to the armature direct and by passing the solenoid.

SOURCE: hooking up wires to battery, solenoid, altornater and starter

hi from the uk if you look at startermotor solenoid you will see two large threaded terminals with nuts? and a third small terminal either spade or round terminal ok? now you should see thet one of large terminals already has a metal or braides strap secured to it and the actual startermotor body? LEAVE THIS ALONE the other large terminal is the one you fit the positive+ lead to from battery also there should be another lead to also attach to same terminal this one supplies power for vehicles electrics etc ensure you secure these with nut ok? now the third small spade or post terminal you will hav a thin wire nearby ?this attaches to thisterminal on its own on solenoid this wire is the one that activates starter when ignition is turned to key start position ok? as for interior light not working ? try again when you complete the above also make sure bulb is ok? ps! before you reconnect starter wires ensure the earth/ground lead is disconnected from battery and when reconnecting battery connect positive lead first then the earth lead or if you try other way you will have sparking from pos lead as you try connecting to battery hope this info is clear instructios for you to follow and wish you luck best wishes from england

SOURCE: not sure how to hook up plow motor to battery? Its

The heavy + should be connected to the battery through the solenoid for the motor. There should be wires to control the solenoid (an electric switch, you know). The - goes to the truck's frame at a place of your choice. The ground must be solid, you know that, right?

I think if I were doing this install, I would hook the plow ground with the battery ground on the fame or where ever it is located.

The plow control should be mounted for your convenience inside the cab.

Lets review: Plow motor | ground to ground, hot to solenoid (motor side) | solenoid (battery side) to battery | solenoid control wires to cab.

I have a fisher minute mount 2 plow for some reason it only goes to the right now , not up or left , no matter what button I press on the control it goes right .


Start by plugging everything in and pop the cover off the control part on the plow and check for magnetism on all 3 solenoids when you hit the various buttons on your plow controller. The pull should be very strong and noticable...a weak magnetic pull is likely just residual magnetism on your screwdriver. In my case, the S3 solenoid wasn't firing and that causes exactly what you're describing.

If your S3 isn't firing you can test the wiring by moving the S3 hot wire to the S2 solenoid. If your wiring is good the plow will misbehave in an entirely different way. Also get out your ohm meter and test the S3, if its good you should get 7 ohms on it.

You need to use the guide from Fisher and be methodical about it. Start at the plow and work your way backwrds towards the truck.

I put new cables on my fisher plow I can get it to go up but not down


Jump the main solenoid for the plow. If it drops the problem is either the solenoid or the switch. Check for power at the small post of the solenoid while someone hold the down button/switch an you should get power there... If not it's in the switch

When i try to lift or angle my plow all i get is a clicking sound when i push the lift button and when i let up on the button the moter on the hydrolic unit will click but will not move the plow. minute...


Not familiar with model, but valves click at the same time motor is suppose to run. Check power and ground to motor (or try running it with jumper cables, but don't be where plow can angle and squish you. If good power but won't spin, clean brushes/commutator/check bearings in motor.

Ignition has no electicity going to it everything else works and we can start the car by bypassing the ignition is there a fuse somewhere we aren't seeing or a wire or is it the key part does anyone know...


Hi, there should be a fuse and a Starter Relay located in engine compartment, driver side, front side of strut tower, mounted in relay block on fender wall.

Different manufacturers use different abreviations for circuit fuses and relays, I recommend to check all of them.

Also, check if when key is in RUN, power is getting to the Starter Selenoid Mounted on top of the Starter thru the skinny wire (There is a FAT wire coming straight from the battery, that one is HOT at all times,) if power is coming in, REPLACE STARTER SELENOID, if no power present, REPLACE IGNITION SWITCH.

I've includded a troubleshooting chart, instruccions on how to replace STARTER SELENOID and some pictures to help you better identify and fix your problem. (I always think is better to have too much information than not enough) : )

Four types of starter motor are utilized depending upon the vehicle transaxle and assembly plant location. Manual transaxle equipped vehicles utilize a conventional starter motor which consists of a yoke, an armature assembly, an overrunning clutch assembly, a solenoid, a commutator end cover, a brush holder and a pinion drive lever. Automatic transaxle equipped vehicles utilize a reduction type starter motor which has, in addition to the components found on conventional starter motors, a reduction gear and shock absorber assembly.

In the basic circuit, the solenoid windings are energized when the ignition switch is turn to the START position and the clutch start/neutral safety switch is closed. The resulting plunger and shift lever movement causes the pinion to engage the engine flywheel ring gear. This movement also causes the starter solenoid contacts to close
.
With the contacts closed, the starter solenoid provides a closed circuit between the battery positive terminal and the starter motor. Because the starter motor is permanently grounded to the engine block, the circuit is complete and cranking occurs as soon as the starter solenoid contacts are closed.

When the engine starts, the pinion is designed to overrun and protect the armature from excessive speed until the ignition switch is released from the START position. With the ignition switch released, a return spring in the solenoid assembly forces the starter solenoid contacts open, breaks the circuit between the battery and the starter motor, and disengages the pinion. To prevent prolonged overrun, the ignition switch should be immediately released upon engine start-up.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the positive battery cable from the starter.
  3. Label and disconnect the solenoid electrical connectors.
  4. Scribe matchmarks on the solenoid and drive housing to ensure proper solenoid installation.
  5. Remove the nut and field coil lead wire from the solenoid.
  6. Remove the screws and solenoid from the starter.

To install:
  1. Lightly grease solenoid plunger.
  2. Install solenoid to starter aligning housing matchmarks.
  3. Install screws and tighten securely.
  4. Install field coil lead wire to solenoid and secure with retaining nut. Tighten to 89 inch lbs.. (10 Nm).
  5. Install the solenoid electrical connector.
  6. Install the positive battery cable. to the starter. Tighten to 89 inch lbs.. (10 Nm).
  7. Connect the negative battery cable.
Let me know how it worked out, Good Luck,

How do i pull off the starter on my 1991 pathfinder and can you provide pictures if needed


I copied this directly out of my manual. Don't know how to get you a picture.

Starter removal:

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. On models equipped with a V6 engine, raise the vehicle and support it on jackstands.

2. Remove the wires from the starter solenoid. Label the wires and terminals to prevent confusion during installation.

3. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts.

4. Lift out the starter motor and solenoid.
5. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
