The starter is very easy to wire in, here is an image to help you out, and the starter should be connected like so;

1. Connection 1 should have the Pos. (+) battery cable, and all of the other wires from the wiring harness that have the large eyelet connectors on them connected to it.

2. Connection 2 should have the wire with the small eyelet connector connected to it, and the wire will be hot when the key is in the "start" position.

    The 2 connection is the "S" terminal on the starter solenoid.

Only thing it could have been in the first place is the wire from the switch to the starter is disconnected from the starter. Even a new switch won't fix that. Just get under the car and plug the wire back onto the spade connector.

Starter relay wiring for a 1999 chev cav


Skychief2001 is correct.
There should be one wire with a small connector on it that goes to the "s" terminal on the starter (this is the trigger wire that activates the starter solenoid). All the other wires hook up with the large one. The large wire goes directly to the battery, the smaller wires are used to power various other circuits of the car and have nothing to do with the starter itself. It is just an access point for battery power.

95 nissan d21 will not turn on/over


You have power to other items but if you have none to the ig switch usually a big red or brown wire then there is nothing going back to the starter etc.You say the red is dead. That usually comes from the big starter terminal. Try google images for a diagram if you don't have one. Alternatively if you can easily access the starter take a length of heavy wire and flash between the battery positive and starter terminal and see if it turns over. If so, you have to fault find the supply to the key.

Hi, this is a 2 wire Delco alternator. The wire from the terminal on the back goes to the battery or starter, and the other (excite) wire goes to the battery light in the dash. It also goes to the PCM--not sure which pin, sorry.
