Looks like a land mine? Two big terminals and one small? The small is the start, It closes the two big. So, small connected to wire that comes from start button. Batt positive to one large pos. and other large post to starter post. Done.

I have a question about my 2003 gmc seirra 6.0l. When I turn the key to crank the engine it struggles for a second then starts. It has the same sound as if the battery is almost dead, but I just replaced...

Might be a fuel delivery issue. You can rent a fuel pressure test kit from most parts stores. see if the pump pressures are correct or if the regulator is bad.

1996 nissan maxima is eating cylanoid switches

If "tapping" the SOLENOID ever worked... you

Defective is all inclusive... and when "STUFF"
happens (burns up)... it is VERY LIKELY to cause
COLATERAL damage...

((fix that "STUFF" later)).

At the SOLENOID ... apply "B" battery DIRECTLY
to the "S" terminal of the SOLENOID...

IF it does not fully spin up the starter 100% of the time
the solenoid or the starter is DEFECTIVE.

Starter cylanoid just replaced,now no power to anything

You might have not hooked up the main hot wire right. It is a large cable that goes from the battery to the solenoid. Make sure all connections on the battery are tight and clean.

Sparking under vehicle when trying to start. It has a new battery and new cylanoid.

That sounds like a loose cable from the ignition solenoid down at the starter, or the cable between the starter and the starter solenoid is exposed and touching metal ground on the vehicle. Check the condition of the cable to the starter and also be sure that it is tight, and not touching any metal ground surfaces on the vehicle, and if there is nothing wrong with either then the starter is most likely is faulty.

No electric power, only to feed side of cylanoid

There is a fuseable link on the heavy wire, not the battery cable, going to the hot terminal of the solenoid. That heavy wire (about 12 gauge) supplies power to the vehicle. Take a test light and probe the wire on both sides of that fuseable link (it says fuseable link on it). If you don't have power on the vehicle side of that link, that's part of the problem. Now you have to figure out why it blew. It may have just corroded off, I've seen that happen.

Is there a reset switch on 2007 gsxr 750. wont start

You have some crushed wiring along the frame. Check the wiring from the switch along the frame under the seat for a rub or a pinch in the insulation. It has a short causing the lights to flash.
