I do not know how to wire up a starter for a 2001 oldsmoble areora the battery come out of the back seat then goes to a fuse box in the front engine then two wires go from the hot terminal to the starter the red wire is hot and the smaller wire which goes to the starter is also hot but this will not work I do not know where to but the ground I have placed it on the starter housing the frame and the motor ,but It will not work .When I try to hook up the battery it sparks hard and the engine starter tries to start the car
There is no 'ground' ... the car is the common ground. You are truing to hool the starter to the hot battery. The starter must be connected to the start solenoid (starter sice).
Please go to the library and look at a Motors Manual. If you keep stabbing at this, you will get seriously hurt. Batatery coule explode ... starter might actually start the engine while you are working on it.
Get more information on this before you get hurt.
