SOURCE: hooking up wires to battery, solenoid, altornater and starter

hi from the uk if you look at startermotor solenoid you will see two large threaded terminals with nuts? and a third small terminal either spade or round terminal ok? now you should see thet one of large terminals already has a metal or braides strap secured to it and the actual startermotor body? LEAVE THIS ALONE the other large terminal is the one you fit the positive+ lead to from battery also there should be another lead to also attach to same terminal this one supplies power for vehicles electrics etc ensure you secure these with nut ok? now the third small spade or post terminal you will hav a thin wire nearby ?this attaches to thisterminal on its own on solenoid this wire is the one that activates starter when ignition is turned to key start position ok? as for interior light not working ? try again when you complete the above also make sure bulb is ok? ps! before you reconnect starter wires ensure the earth/ground lead is disconnected from battery and when reconnecting battery connect positive lead first then the earth lead or if you try other way you will have sparking from pos lead as you try connecting to battery hope this info is clear instructios for you to follow and wish you luck best wishes from england

SOURCE: how do you put a starter solenoid in a 1988 ford

Ford does not put the solenoid on the starter itself, so then it is just a relay, usually on a fender. It will have 4 wires. Two thick ones from the battery and to the starter. And 2 thin ones from ignition switch and to ground.

SOURCE: i have a ford f150 changeing the solenoid and not

If this is the starter solenoid, the two large wires go on the bigger posts, one from battery and the other to the starter. The smaller wires go on the smaller posts. One from the ignition switch and the other to ground.

Testimonial: "I am pretty sure this is what I needed. I will hook up tomorrow, but I did notice one other thing and think that your answer is correct. On the + side of the battery it currently has a long cable that ends very close to the starter. I know that if it is hook to the starter and the ground connect to the motor it would be a direct short. I will buy a new shorter cable and do as you say. (Why would there be a long + cable there?)It does have a OEM starter with just on connection. Thanks for your help."

I need a ford f150 solenoid diagram so i can hook it up


Hi, if you have the solenoid on the fender, connect the big wire from the battery on one side and the big wire to the starter on the other side. It doesn't really matter which side, but if there are additional wires that fit on a big terminal, they go along with the battery wire. The smaller terminal marked "S" gets the wire from the ignition switch (via the safety interlock switch). If there is another small terminal on the solenoid, it either goes to the ignition coil or is not used. Please let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.

I think the ignition switch is stuck in 83 ford f150. when you put battery cables on it is trying to start. I can put the key in and turn it and take it back out, but until the battery is disconnected it...


If your able to remove the key it's more likely that your solenoid is locking up. If the engine is actually starting then it could be the bendix is locking into the flywheel and not allowing the starter to release.

MOTOR OPERTAES WITHOUT KEY


your starter,solenoid or ignition is no good. but my first choice,i think your solenoid is shorted because when you hook up the battery,it cranks but does not start.that means your ignition switch is still working.

350 Chevy starter wiring diagram needed this engine has a points style distributer there are 3 wires plus the large battery cable Solinoid Power Alt Output Ign Switch Start THANKS


IF YOU HAVE A POINTS TYPE DISTRIBUTER, THE WIRING WILL BE: TO ENERGIZE THE STARTER SOLENOID A LARGE, ABOUT A NUMBER 12 OR 14 GAUGE WIRE WILL GO TO THE INNER MOST SMALL TERMINAL ON THE STARTER SOLENOID. IT MAY BE PURPLE IN COLOR. THE SECOND SMALLER WIRE SHOULD GO TO THE OUTER SOLENOID TERMINAL AND GO FROM THERE TO THE + TERMINAL ON THE IGNITION COIL. THIS IS FOR BY PASSING THE RESISTOR WIRE FROM THE STARTER IGNITION SWITCH. THE LARGER BATTERY CABLE WILL GO TO THE UPPER TERMINAL ON THE STARTER SOLENOID. THERE MAY BE AN ADDITIONAL BATTERY FEED WIRE TAKE OFF FROM THE STARTER BATTERY TERMINAL POST ON THE SOLENOID FOR OTHER ACCESSORIES. THIS TYPE OF SYSTEM (POINTS TYPE) WAS TYPICALLY DONE AWAY WITH IN 1975 WHEN THE HEI DISTRIBUTOR CAME OUT.

1990 ford f-150 nothing happens when ignition is turned on


Solenoid was not mentioned as replaced.

If it was not part of new starter...that's the culprit.

Ignition switch (smaller wire) activates the solenoid (heavier wire) which in turn activates the (high current) starter.

Location of alternator 1986 ford f150 xlt lariat


Well first have you charged your battery back up, if so then try to by pass the ingintion switch by just connecting the two main post of the colenoid with a piece or wire, this creates a direct wire basically from your battery to your starter, if still no luck you will need a new starter located more to the drivers side close to right under the pedels on the bottom side of the truck.
