SOURCE: I picked up a 1988 Ford F150 6cy and the starter solenoid missing

I have provided an image that will assist you and it will connect like so;

1. Connection 1 should have the Pos. (+) battery cable and all of the wires with the large eyelet connectors from the wiring harness connected to it, except for the large cable that runs down to the starter.

2. Connection 2 should only have the large cable going down to the starter connected to it, and there should be no other wire connected there.

3. Connection 3 is the "S" terminal on the starter solenoid, and it is the wire with the small push on connector that is hot only when the key is in the "start" position, usually it is a red wire with a blue stripe, but that is not always the case.

4. Connection 4 is the "I" connection on the starter solenoid and it feeds current back into the ignition, and it is not used on a lot of vehicles after 1981, but if your vehicle has it it will be a small push on connector that will not have any power from it at all, and it will usually be a black wire with a white stripe, but that is not always so.

SOURCE: Trying to install starter solenoid for 1987 Ford

as you can see all wires go with the loop on them go to the side nearest to the firewall, plug one on top and starter wire goes to the one closest to the battery.

2000ford ranger replace the solenoid and starter show me wher wires go

Did you take the old solenoid off? By the way, did you know it is usually cheaper to buy the starter with the solenoid attached than to just buy a solenoid? On older models the solenoid is on the firewall, two wires will go on the end of the starter, also I believe it is two wires that go to solenoid. I don't know how to add pictures to this post, but, just Google.....replace starter and solenoid on 2000 Ford Ranger.

Need a diagram of wiring for starter solenoid/1992/ford/ranger

Not much to the solenoid, but I'll attach a wiring schematic for 3.0 and 4.0. Be careful not to touch the two post together on the solenoid or it will start right up on you! One lead goes directly to the starter and the other goes to the positive lead on the battery. Good luck.

Truck turns over and starts when I connect battery???? No key is even in the ignition.

Maybe the ignition is bad- or your starter solenoid stuck in engaged position?

2006 ranger just clicks wont turn over

Did your starter have the Solenoid on it or is yours separate and mounted on the drivers side fender under the hood? The Red wire from the battery will go to the solenoid, then continue on down to the starter. It is possible that this part is faulty.

Hello, i need instructions on how to wire a replacement solenoid in my 1995 ford ranger pickup, 4 cyl. The directions in the package only account for 3 wires and i have 4 wires going to my origional...

Starter solenoid???? 2 large posts and 2 small posts on old one or 2 large and 1 small? the one large wire goes to the starter(rear post), all the others goes on the front post. little wire goes on the little post, if the old one has 4 posts, then you have the wrong solenoid.

1994 ford ranger starter

I believe there is two solenoids on this vehicle. one on the starter and one on the right side fender area under the hood. Make sure this other solenoid is not bad.

Hot starter doesn't work

you need to check and see if your getting power at the starter solenoid on the small wire when it is acting up. this wire should be hot when key is in start position. if you are then you have a solenoid problem. if not then it is a wiring or ign switch problem
