Starter solenoid location


The Solenoid is located on the starter. Typically the solenoid/starter are replaced as one unit. Before you go replacing anything, rule out bad connections ,bad cables. Check all connections at battery. Especially check the ground connections from battery to engine block. See if the starter has a ground wire and check it. Check for corrosion in battery cables. Check connections on the starter, both the smaller wire and the larger cable from the battery. If you disconnect any of these wires, first disconnect the negative cable on the battery. Mechanics know how to 'jump start' the starter directly form the battery. If you know how to do this- try it. If you don't know how - DON"T TRY IT! What you can try is to connect a jumper cable from the NEGATIVE terminal of the battery to the BODY of the starter, not to any of the wires, and see if the car starts. This little test will rule out a ground problem

I have a 98 saturn sw. Replaced the alternator, there's a wire, thick looks like it goes to the starter? Didn't take this wire off, don't know where it goes. possibly called the B wire. Alternator reading...


There is a heavy red wire that connects to the only terminal on the back of the alternator. The starter should have a smaller purple wire connected to the starter solenoid. A red (positive) battery cable connects to the top terminal of the starter solenoid. There also may be smaller red wires connected to the solenoid at the same connection where the heavy red battery cable connects. Hope this helps

I am installing a push button starter switch on a 1973 chevy pickup with manual 4 speed trans. What are the colors of the wires on the starter switch do I need to connect my switch to? Jack


If you look at the wire to the starter solenoid it should be green or orange. That will be the wire to use. The solenoid as you know needs power to rune the starter only and a push button switch will do alright for you. Just hide it in a good spot were know one will activate it while the engine is running. That will be bad for the flywheel and starter drive

I have three wires that run form the battery down to the starter. I need to know where they are attached to the starter.I don't want to burn starter. When I attempted to start vehicle, the starter and hot...


Your positive the red wire goes on the big bolt of your starter - You should have two smaller wires - One is from the distributor and the other is from the igniton. Hook these two wires up the same way you took it off. If you are not sure of how the wire came off and should go back buy a Chilton - It is not like re-wiring a light switch and it won't turn on if it isn't connected correctly - This could mess up your car if it isn't wired correctly!

Need to hook up the altenator. thick wire from altenator is loose and i don't know where it connects to.


It sounds like you have answered your own question here...? the thick wire from the alternator connecting to the starter terminal feeds electricity back to the battery though the starter cable when you are running... if you have a manual you can see for yourself in the wiring charts. Hope this helps...

Need to bypass ignition switch on nissan sentra


it should be underneath your car in between the firewall and the engine. Now you don't want to supply direct power to your starter because you'll end up frying it. However to just start the car once you've located the starter, get a long screwdriver with a plastic handle and connect the two wires with the screwdriver.

As for a long term fix, without investing the money to replace the necessary parts. You will need to attach a wire that can handle 12v to both wires on your starter separately. Then connect the other ends of both wires to a switch that can handle 12v, and mount that in your car somewhere. Then whenever you need to start your car just flip the switch on until the car starts then once it is started flip it back off.
I know this sounds like a lot but it is very doable with about $5 and a little bit of time.
