Starter problem

wiring to the starter; large cable coming from the battery to the
large post on the starter is direct current, hot at all times. there are two small wires that connect to the solenoid, one comes from the ignition.
Look for loose connection especially ground. If you jumper the connection on the solenoid to the large connection on the battery and it starts, I would suspect fault in the ignition circuit...

Starter wiring

According to my wiring diagram, you should only have one small wire which is purple. That wire goes on the R or S terminal. The I terminal was used for cars with point system ignition before electronic ignition.
The purple wire should be hot when the key switch is in the start position.

1994 Olds Cutlass Ciera starter issues

You should have two or three wires that go to the large post on the solenoid, including the 4 gauge wire from the battery. Then one 16 gauge wire to the small post. That wire comes from the key switch.
Let me know if you need colors for wires.

I cant figure out how to wire a push button ignition on my 1985 ford f-150

If you're looking for wiring a push-button starter, then you just need to connect one terminal of a momentary type switch to the solenoid (little) post on your starter, and the other wire to a ground source. This will only crank the engine, so you would need an additional switch, or the actual ignition switch to switch on the accessories, and the ignition system.

Bypassing starter

the solenoid has 2 big cables one goes to the battery and the other to the starter.
the small wire that has a boot that pushes on to the screw is the control to close the solenoid.unless the solenoid is shorted,the starter should not run
