My 1998 dodge stratus wont start when i turn the key and their is a burnt wire smell and the wire is from the starter to a cilinode ? I think not sure do i have to replace the wire or the hole starter

Replace the starter. Starter is bound up and is drawing a lot of amps thus causing the burnt wire smell and wire to be hot.
This is a good video to help you diagnose the starter.

Wont start

You may need to replace the starter mounted solenoid. It may have burnt starter contacts, so it closes but makes no connection to the battery so the starter gets no power.

I had the starter replaced!!! and a spark happen....well any way the headlights and horn and radio doesn't work...but all others do....i had the light switch changed and replaced all fuse..but no...

there is a fusible link at the starter ( large post ), when you shorted the main post you burnt the fusible link. you may not have to remove the starter, just get back under there and pull on the small wires going to the large post on the starter and you will find the burnt one.

Wont turn over. no crank, starter clicks, no dead battery. replaced the relay.

this problem is caused by burnt battery contacts inside the starter solenoid that power the starter motor, either remove the starter and rebuild the solenoid or replace it or the whole starter, the starter solenoid is mounted directly to the starter. You can easily replace the contacts, they are avail on ebay for around $10
Remember ALWAYS disconnect the battery Negative cable befor u start work

I turn the key and sometimes it will just click and not turn over. I try this 2 or 3 times and then the starter engages and the vehicle starts.

Either the solenoid or the starter motor itself. You need either a test light or a voltmeter to check for power at the starter side large terminal of the solenoid when it just clicks. If you get voltage or light every time it clicks, the starter motor is defective. If you don't get voltage or light when it just clicks, the solenoid is defective.

Battery has a full charge, but the solenoid just "clicks" when i try to start it

the contacts inside the starter solenoid that power up the starter are burnt, this is a common issue on this starter design, you can replace just the solenoid or just replace the whole starter.

1995 dodge caravan 3.0l starts but starter does not diengage

If that starter is damaged then replace it and make sure that you shim the starter correctly or it will bind the gears and do the same thing again.

1987 bronco will not start

Ford used alot of fuseable links, mostly around starter selenoid, look around for them and everyone you find try pulling them apart if there bad or burnt they will pull apart and there is your problem. If you don't find one burnt, than its got to be in the wire comming from the switch, heck there might be one of them fuseable links in that wire too.I never had to go that far to find a burnt one it was always around the selenoid or starter.

Starter will not turn

Does the starter make one click when you turn the key to the start position? If so, your starter solenoid contacts are worn/burnt. You can either replace the starter (expensive), or remove the starter & have the contacts replaced (inexpensive); Starter contact replacements are a common repair item.
