91 Acura legend has no power to the starter but everything else has power.

Yank the starter relay in the under dash relay box. Check for battery power on terminals 1 & 2 in the relay socket with the key turned to START. If no power, check fuses 31 and 35. If you have power on those terminals, check for ground on terminal 3 in the socket when turned to START. If no ground, the Security system isn't seeing a good signal from the clutch interlock switch or the auto transmission shift console switch. Check those out

Starter hook up

Should be fairly easy. The wires with large ends go on the center stud with the cable from the battery, and the purple wire goes on the S terminal of the solenoid.

Looking at terminal block on the vehicle with the connect tang to top wires are numbered from right to left 1 to 4 then bottom right to ldft 5 to 8Terminals 3 & are accessory on . 2,3&4 are ignition on and turn on 7&8.

Golf battery polarity

reversed polarity,check fuses. check the system for burnt wires also !
Always hook up your battery terminals correctly, as the alternator may be damaged if the battery is hooked up backward. jump start car, if it will. there should be at least 13.7 to 14.2 volts at battery posts while its running. if alternator is ok.

I need help removing wiring off of starter for 91 chevy corsica

First and foremost, before you do any of that make sure you disconnect the battery terminals, unless you want to get the **** shocked out of you.

The starter (in case you're not aware, I have no idea) is a black cylindrical object right underneath the front of the car... pretty close to the bumper cover. There should only be two bolts holding it up - taking it off is pretty simple. Just get the bolts off with a socket wrench (you might need a deep set socket) and you're set. Hooking it back up can be tricky though. Try and mark the wires somehow so you can remember which ones go where, or you might cause some electrical issues when you get it back on.
