Open hood. Looking down on the engine, it is on the lower part of the engine where the transmission and engine meet.
Follow the red battery cable. It is connected to the starter solenoid / relay switch (also known as the starter switch). The solenoid is sitting on top of the starter.
How certain are you that the starter needs to be replaced? Doe sit start if you boost the battery?

Try this test:
Turn ON headlights and try to start car.
1. headlights turn OFF completely when you try to start car: means tha th e battery connections need cleaning. Remove the battery cables and clean the cable clamps and the battery posts.
2. Headlights dim really low means: The battery needs to be charged up or replaced.
3. No change in headlight brightness means: solenoid needs replacing; perhaps the starter.

Please let us know... trying to save you some $$ and lots of work.

    If the car makes a clicking noise when you try to start, then #1 (clean battery posts) is the solution.

This should be located in the power/fuse box under the hood. The box should be located near the battery. Remove the plastic cover on the box and there should be a diagram showing the positions for the relays.

2000 dodge intrepid radio silent. All lights work, any suggestions? Car sat with dead batt 12 months.

I recommend checking the fuse for the radio. It may be blown. If it is, replace it with another fuse that has the same amperage rating. I believe the fuses will be color coded based on how many amps they are rated at. Just replace it with the same color. The fuse box is located under a panel on the left side of the dash. You access it by opening the driver's side door and gently pulling the panel off. I believe your owner's manual will have a diagram that shows what fuse goes where. There may be a diagram on the back of panel you pull off too.
