You attached the other end of the battery cable that goes to the starter solenoid to the other side of the solenoid it seems. Look at where your cables go on the solenoid, it usually tells you on it

Which wires go where on a 2003 3.4 liter Chevy

There are three posts on the starter solenoid. Two large ones, and one small one. One of the large ones has a braided wire going into the starter. leave this one alone. On the other large ones, you will connect the positive battery cable as well as the large red wire coming from the alternator. The small purple wire connects to the small post on the solenoid. Lastly, on the engine block pointing the opposite way (towards the drivers side) is another stud and you will connect the negative battery cable to it.
Make sure that none of the wires can touch the other posts coming out of the solenoid.

Why won t my car turnover

  • Okay, a clicking sound is the solenoid engaging the starter drive gear but the starting motor is not turning over. First possible is low battery. Second is bad or dirty connection, usually battery terminal. Good enough to energize solenoid but not enough amps to spin starter. Third is a bad starter motor, usually a brush corroded, worn or stuck.
  • Lift the hood and look at the battery terminals. if they are clean and tight, check the battery for charge. I usually hook a booster on and try cranking the engine over. ZIf it works, charge or replace the battery.
  • If it didn't crank, Take a jumper cable and connect the one end to the battery positive. Touch the other end to the starter motor terminal. Motor should turn over, if not, replace the starter.

How to put a starter in a 2002 malibu

1st remove POSITIVE cable from the battery. Then remove the wring from the starter. Remove the (2) bolts that are holding the starter to the engine and remove the dtarter. Replace with new starter and replace bolts. Tighten to about 60fpt or "very tight." after you have the bolts retightened, relace the wires to the starter. Be SURE to clean the contact points where the wires attach to the starter as they may be corroded. After you have the wires re-attached, replace the positive lead to the battery and test the system by attempting to start the engine. If this fails go back and make sure you have good contact with the wires. IF for some reason this is not working, check the positive lead to the starter with a testlight or ohmeter for power. Be sure that the lead TO THE BATTERY is hot on the strter end. You should be okay folowing these easy steps.

1999 ford ranger wont start. no attempt to start no clicking etc. Replaced battery and still no attempt to start. Lights work etc. Battery was charged and tested at parts store and I was told the original...

Starter may be bad, or connection to the starter could be corroded or broken. There also may be a fuse, I'm not sure. Locate the starter and try running a jumper wire to it. Mini jumper cables will work. Hook those up to the battery and then run it to the starter. Ground it to a metal part and use the positive side to touch the power connector on the starter. IF the starter kicks, its a connection issue. If it doesnt, replace the starter.

1993 Ford Explorer battery was stolen and they cut all the cables

which wires ? the ones connected to the battery? or the wiring harness? if it's the battery cables then the large wire is the positive side normally red and the negative side is black and is half the size of the positive wire. The battery will have a + and a - on it so you know that the positive wire is + the larger wire and the smaller is black.

1993 Ford Explorer wont start

I remember reading in the owners manuel of my 93 exploer about a cut off button. If wont allow your car to start if you are in an accident, and sometimes, even if you hit a pot hole or bump too hard, this can also trigger it. It can be reset though, and I believe it is located between the front and back seats in the middle. Not sure where, because it has been a month or more since I read it. But maybe some else knows just where to look.

92' Ford Explorer Starter?

Check you positive side cable for corrosion and you might need to replace the cable because it runs from the battery direct to the starter and to the starter relay that is mounted on the right front fender under the hood. You have 2 (two) starter relays on your Explorer.
