They cannot be ground wires if they were attached to the terminals on the starter. One has to be from the ignition switch to tell the starter to turn over. How many pins for wires on the starter. There should at a minium be two. A big one for the positive wire from the battery and an input to the solenoid from the ignition switch.

I forgot where the wires go on the starter of my 2000 chevy cavalier


There should not be very many wires at that starter, and the positive battery cable along with any other wire(s) with a large 3/8 inch eyelet connector will connect to the main upper large terminal on the starter solenoid. There should be only one wire with a small eyelet connector (usually a purple or pink colored wire) and it will connect to the small terminal on the starter solenoid and is usually marked "S" next to the terminal. Also, if there was a ground strap attached at a starter bolt, then be certain that it gets re-attached to a starter bolt. Here is a diagram to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Wiring up startrer for 1978 chevy montecarlo


The "+" positive battery cable and all other wires with large eyelet connectors connect to the upper large terminal on the starter solenoid, and the wire with the small eyelet connector (usually a purple wire) will connect to the small "S" terminal on the starter solenoid, and if there is a small "R" or "I" terminal on the starter solenoid it will not be used for your vehicle and it is only for older vehicles with breaker point ignition systems. Here is a diagram to help assist you and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Im installing a starter and solenoid back into the car and the cable coming up from the engine block with a red casing is lost?? I have no clue which screw coming off the sylanoid to attach this cord to....


The starter wiring is not that difficult, and the wire with the small eyelet connector goes to the small "S" terminal on the starter solenoid.

The positive battery cable and any other wires with the large eyelet connectors connect together at the large upper main terminal on the starter solenoid.

Any ground strap if the vehicle has one would be used at one of the starter mounting bolts to help ground the starter motor, here is a diagram of your starter to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

I do not know how to put the wires on to a starter to a 1983 chevy Monte Carlo SS


The starter will connect like so;

Be sure that the "-" negative battery cable is dis-connected from the battery before you begin.

The "+" positive battery cable and all of the other wires with the large eyelet connectors will connect together at the large upper main or "BAT" terminal on the starter solenoid.

The "S" terminal on the starter solenoid is for the field wire from the ignition switch, and it will usually be a purple colored wire, however the wire could also be pink or brown and it will have the smaller eyelet connector.

The "I" terminal if the starter solenoid even has one will only be used if the vehicle is an early year and the distributor has a breaker point ignition, and it is not used for electronic distributors.

Here is a diagram to help assist you, and let me know if you require any further assistance.

Wiring in a new starter for a 95 chev cav and not sure wires got put back where they need to be...nothing happening yet power is getting to the starter...


The starter is very easy to wire in, here is an image to help you out, and the starter should be connected like so;

1. Connection 1 should have the Pos. (+) battery cable, and all of the other wires from the wiring harness that have the large eyelet connectors on them connected to it.

2. Connection 2 should have the wire with the small eyelet connector connected to it, and the wire will be hot when the key is in the "start" position.

What conecting wires go where to the starter cyloyned


If your vehicle has a starter solenoid out by the battery and fender well, then 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.

If the starter in your vehicle has the solenoid mounted on the starter then it will connect in a similar way, and the Pos. (+) battery cable along with all of the wires that have the large eyelet connectors on them will be connected together on the upper large terminal on the starter solenoid, and the wire with the smaller eyelet connector on it will be connected to the "S" terminal on the starter solenoid, and the "I" terminal if it even has one should not be used.

Need a wiring diagram/picture for the start solenoid on a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2L automatic. There are 2 fusible links, the positive battery cable and two other wires. 4 wirese come out of the harness...


There should be one wire with a small eyelet connector on it, this is the starter field wire from the ignition switch and it should be connected to the small terminal on the starter solenoid marked "S" (this wire is usually purple, but it can also be red or pink)

All of the other wires to the starter including any fusible links, will have a larger eyelet connector on them, and they will all connect together with the battery cable, to the large upper terminal on the starter solenoid, sometimes marked "BAT".

Need wiring diagram for a 1997 ford f 150 p/u 4wd


The field wire to the starter has a small eyelet connector that connects to the small terminal on the starter solenoid (sometimes marked "S").

All other wires have a large eyelet connector and they are all connected together with the battery cable to the large terminal on the starter solenoid (sometimes marked "BAT").

Sometimes the field wire to the starter is a push on type connector, and there would only be one obvious terminal on the starter solenoid that it could be connected to.
