    What do you mean by you hooked up the starter? Do you mean you installed it on the engine or you just hooked up the wires to it?

Did you get the right starter,just because it look the same does not mean it is the same.These starters come with different drives for different engines.Make sure you have the right one for your truck.Two bolts and two wires did you put the small wire on the wrong small terminal,I bet you did.Switch the small wire to the other terminal,the atarter is turning but the drive is not going into the flywheel.

If hooked up wrong will it blow a fuse or not work anymore


What did you hook-up wrong, hope it wasn't the battery? If you hooked up the battery wrong, not sure what kind of damage might have been done?If some other component, which one?
Any electrical component that doesn't work, check wiring diagram, check voltage and ground for that system.
What is year--make--model?

Need heater hoses diagram for 1996 Ford Ranger 3.0


Hooking up the heater hoses wrong would not cause your problem. I would make sure the system is full of coolant and has no air pockets, and then check the blend door under the dash.

If you can hear the starter then the solenoid is working as it has to work for the starter to make a noise.

Hi, if the extra wire goes to the alternator, then yes, it goes on the big post along with the battery wire. This is your charge wire. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 99 gmc seirra , we have replaced the starter, crank sensor, new battery, clean oil, and filter. The truck will turn over but will not fire. There seems to be no spark, there is gas at the fuel...


You need to hook a fuel pressure gauge to it. It has to have 55 psi or it won't run. Have you checked for spark at one of the plug wires. I'm guessing low fuel pressure, fuel pump.

Can't find starter wire in 1992 GMC Safari Van


dose you truck have a coded key? (a chip in it?) if it does, your out of luck, the wire is ground switched and will not show anything on the volt meter. Instead, find the small wire from the starter and use that to make your connection
