Question about Cars & Trucks
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.

The two large posts,one is live from the battery,one goes to the starter live.The small posts the posts marked i nedds power from your key switch and the left over post provides power to the ignition system only while the key is in the start position.Hope this helps.

To start, why did you replace the starter? Was it bad? Did you have it checked? Is the new one good? And what is the battery reading in Volts? Does it click at all, crank at all? Did you check the fusible link? Follow the hot wire from the battery to the link, a giant fuse type thing, check it out. Is the ground wire from the battery bolted to the frame or body, and engine? Is the starter connected right? Are the terminals on the battery posts squeaky clean? they have to be or it won't do anything. Check the electrolyte fluid and see what the gravity of each cell is. The battery with one weak cell is a dead duck. The voltage should be at 13.5 at all times. The posts have got to be clean and tight, the starter should at least click. Do you have an anti-theft device somewhere in there you forgot about? Check it out. Hope this helps.
