The solenoid has two main heavier wires one from the battery the other to the starter. There are usually two smaller wires that come from the start switch that activates the solenoid. If you are having problems with the starter switch not activating the solenoid you can (but with caution) use a screwdriver to go between the battery and starter wire on the solenoid this will engage the starter and will help you see if your starter is working. The solenoid could be defective.

I installed a new alternator, batter, and starter in my 1997 Ford Expedition and my truck wont start unless you hit the starter. All the wires are good so what else is there to check?

Sounds like you still have a bad starter. You can get a bad one from the parts store. Go back and have them test it. Or could be cylinoid.

My 94 cutlass supreme wont start,we boosted it and it dont even make a sound in the starter

It sounds like a bad starter. You can take it to an auto parts store and have them check it. If it is not the starter then check to make sure there is power to the starter. Then take a test light and check that there is power at the main battery cable that hooks to the starter cylinoid. If there is power there, check both of the small posts ( one that has a wire to it) With the key in the start position, check power on the small terminal of the cylinoid. If you have power there, you have a bad starter, if not then you may have a bad switch. I would start by taking the starter to the parts store first.

Bike wont start

You have to check the starter motor,prolly the brushes are gone . Also check the connections from battery to the solenoid and from the solenoid to the starter.

Good Luck.
