TESTING
The easiest way to test the performance of the starter is to perform a voltage drop test.
The battery must be in good condition and fully charged prior to performing this test.

  1. Connect a voltmeter between the positive and negative terminals of the battery.
  2. Turn the ignition key to the START position and note the voltage drop on the meter.
  3. If voltage drops below 11.5 volts, there is high resistance in the starting system.
  4. Check for proper connections at the battery and starter.
  5. Check the resistance of the battery cables and replace as necessary.
  6. If all other components in the system are functional, the starter may be faulty.

Many automotive parts stores have starter bench testers available for use by customers. A starter bench test is the most definitive way to determine the condition of your starter.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
  2. Disconnect the leads from the starter motor.
  3. Remove the starter motor retaining bolts.
  4. Remove the starter motor from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the starter motor to the flywheel housing.
  2. Apply locking compound to the bolt threads and install the retaining bolts finger-tight.
  3. Tighten the bolts to approximately 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
  4. Connect the starter motor leads and the negative battery cable.

Starter spins correctly when I hook pos to neg and neg to pos


Sounds like someone has changed the starter recently and they have the negative cable from the battery hooked up to the starter solenoid. You need to have the positive cable hooked to the starter solenoid not the negative cable.

Well, if your starter starts to turn when you hook the battery cable up, then you have hooked the cable to the wrong post on the starter. You have two large posts and one small post on the starter solenoid, the battery cable goes on the large post that has nothing else hooked to it. The other large post should have a large braided cable going into the starter motor housing. If the starter still will not turn the engine over when it is wired correctly then you will need to look closer at the flywheel ring gear.

Truck will not start how can i tell if its a starter or selonoid


does it spin real fast without clanging and grinding against the flywheel? if so then its probably the solenoid bad. do you have to hit the starter with a hammer then it works? it is probably bad brushes or a worn motor. eather way i think you can only get a new starter and solenoid together not sold seperate. check for bad battery cables (loose).

I know on a lot of these gm starters there is two places you can hook the smaller wire on the starter. If so you probably have it hooked to the wrong one even if you look at the old starter and it looked to be hooked to that one try hooking it to the other one.

You need to recheck your wires that you hooked up when you replaced the starter.You possibly have some that could be touching each other.If the the positive cable touches the purple wire on the solenoid the engine will turn over when you hook up the battery.Check your wiring very carefully.Hope this helps.Good luck.

STARTER SHORTED OUT


main wire to the big bolt, little wire to the little bolt. dont do this with the battery in becuase you could fry some wires. if you have already fried the wires then there should be a fusible link just off the battery

2000 ford truck starting problems


most likley the positive wire has corroded off the starter. look at the small red wire more closely, if theres alot of corosion, replace the wire (and starter if needed) if you dont see much corrosion give the wire a good tug just to see if it really is hooked up well. you should disconnect the batt. before doing any of this.hope this helps and good luck
