On this make I it is connected to the starter. You need to remove starter from vehicle. It is the solenoid on the side of the starter.

Starter fuse location and strater relay

In most newer cars the starter fuse is a fusible link or in a fuse panel under the hood. Fusible links are often difficult to find because they look like a barely noticeable bump in the wire. The starter relay/solenoid is typically an assembly that is part of the starter motor.

I have a 1990 F250 with a 460 engine the truck will not start without jumping it off the solenoid and after you get it started and get to when you are going and try to start it again it will not jump again...

Try replacing the solinoide, and make sure ALL connections are clean and making good contact. Also you should have the strater amperage draw and the charging system tested.

My car starts w/out key. When I put my batterie (new) in it. Trys starting over and over I started it and it stared but still the starter keeps firing. Also the batterie conecter seems to be magnatizing...

This sounds like something is amok in the starter, disconnect the small wires and test again with the battery hooked up. IF still an issue, replace the starter, if the starter not activated, check wiring to the starter soleniod for faults or crossed wires.

Power at battery good. power to starte solenoid good, strater tested good. Wont turn over(start cranking)

Sounds like the solinoid is bad. The small wire going to the solinoid should have battery voltage going to it when the key is in the start position. If it does your solinoid is bad. If it doesent your key swith is bad or the wire going to the solinoid is cut somewher between the switch and the solinoid

My 2000 Jimmy has problems with a cold start, and just today, it died on me while driving. I was stuck in traffic and had the A/C running. My radio sayed on but the vehicle hesitated during acceleration...

If you get absolutely nothing from the vehicle when turning the key, first, check your battery voltage. On your dash, the battery voltage should show ~10-12 volts with the key in the on position only. It will read ~14-16 volts with the engine running. If your battery does not satisfy both these test conditions, replace your battery and replace it with a battery that is recommended for your engine size.

If replacing the battery does not do the trick and you are still getting absolutely nothing, not even a chirp from the starter, or if it just clicks without turning the engine, it is most likely your solenoid. The solenoid is attached to your starter and engages the starter gear in order to turn over your engine. In the cold this will be more apparent. If after you've replaced the battery and the problem still exists, replace the entire starter (try a used one first - you can typically get one from a junk yard for around $35). This project is not difficult. Just removed the front passenger side wheel to expose the wiring, detach and remove starter from underneath (two bolts).

If after replacing the entire starter it still won't start, try buying just the solenoid only (brand new) and replace it. This will require you to remove the entire starter again, unfortunately. You will need a special female torx set to remove three screws and replace only the solenoid. This is the cheapest route to go. Good Luck!! It worked for me. If you want to skip a few steps and go right to a brand new starter, go for it, but for those who can't afford the price of one or the labor, this will work good for you.
