Question about Pontiac Montana
What year and engine size ! How many wires do you have ? Should just be large gage red battery cable and maybe some fusible links that hook up to same terminal as the battery cable , and a smaller gage wire that goes on the S terminal on the starter solenoid !

SOURCE: Pontiac Montana starting problem
All 4 power wires go together on the large center stud on the solenoid.
The purple wire goes on the small stud.
The purple wire supplys the trigger signal when the key is turned to the start position.Since your solenoid is clicking when the key is turned to start this is working properly.
I would check battery connections and then check power connections on solenoid again.Make sure all connections are clean and tight.

SOURCE: need to replace starter
should be 2 bolts 15mm and then 2 nuts on the starter 13mm and 8mm. this is a very easy starter to do. make sure you remover ground battery cable before doing this starter.

On your van the solenoid is attached to the starter. If you can get a solenoid separate (i don't know if you can) then you will need to take the starter off and remove the solenoid (2 screws holding it on) and the wires (on red and one black i believe) pay attention to which wire goes where because you don't want to reverse it on the new solenoid.

SOURCE: STARTER MOTOR WIRING
The wires with the large loops go on the big terminal. The purple wire likely is the one with the smaller loop that goes on the right terminal (facing the solenoid). That is ith trigger wire from the ignition key.Do not permit the wires from either terminals to touch.
