Most starters come with the solenoid attached to them. Need to place one end of a wire on the power terminal and with ignition in the on position, touch other end of wire to solenoid terminal. Engine should turn over, but be very careful to not touch anything else.

How do I reset ignition on 1998 Saturn

power is not getting to starter, clean all thick wires that feed the starter, grounds, chasis to batt ground, chasis to engine ground.
after, do a test if the starter works by sending 12v+ to the small conector in the starter's solenoid... (if only clicks, is the solenoid, for confirmation bridge the two large terminals in the solenoid, carefull lots of sparks!!, if still NO work, is the starter)

Mitsubishi Fuso Starter problems, starting has gotten worse and worse. Now will not turn over at all. checked wires already

Yes, bridge the starter solenoid post to the starter battery cable post. Use a small jumper wire or just a small screwdriver. Have the key off, vehicle in neutral-bridging the terminals will cause a good starter to start cranking the engine.

I turn turn the key all the way but nothing,i am still getting power as lights and stereo work and windows any ideas?

If your lights horn and stereo work and the starter is not turning the problem could be starter relay , the starter itself or a fusible link. I would start with the fusible link myself.

1996 plymouth grand voyager 3.0 was running good stoped at the store came out won't start. Does'nt make a sound when you turn the key but all the lights and other stuff work

Hi I am Vortash you say it didn't make a sound .. no clicking to say the starter motor was trying to engage nothing ? if that is the case then I would say it is either a duff battery or the earth or negative connection is faulty or the lead to the starter motor positive lead is at fault or that the starter solenoid itself is faulty .. finally the only other thing it can be with symptons like that is a faulty ignition switch not connecting the starter connection .. simple test .. turn ignition on select neutral and bridge the two connections on the back of the starter solenoid that is the two to the positive lead .. so the starter gets a direct feed by passing the solenoid .. or on the two connections that go to the solenoid ( smaller wires that activate the solenoid put a seprate feed an touch to the battery if it starts it is the ignition switch .. The solenoid is only an electro magnetic switch that pulls a metal bar inside to bridge the two connections of the large bore wires that carry the high amperage juice to the starter .. A Haynes manual is invaluable for things like this and gives you many ideas to repair your car cheaply and efficiently ... regards Vortash

Dodge intiped cannot start after change engine

Was the shims used from the old engine? Possible the gear on the starter is worn ? Also check compatibility between the year models.
