All the solenoid does is make a connection between the battery terminal and the starter terminal. It does not matter which way you hook up the power cables, it will work the same either way.

My yardman he 4160 starter solinod wires are not connected there are 2 red thick cables and 2 thin cables can anyone help


One large cable comes from the battery and goes on one large post of the solenoid.
The other large wire goes to the starter and goes on the second large post on the solenoid.
It does not matter which post you choose.
The small wires ... if they have large ends that would fit the large posts, will go on the battery cable side of the solenoid.
The small wires ... if they have small ends, and your solenoid has two small posts, should be installed on them. Again, it does not matter which post, install one on each.

I have a 1991 rs camaro 305 . I just replaced the starter motor when i went to hook back up the battery the starter motor began to spin. Need some help?


sounds as if you have connected the heavy battery wire to the wrong side of the solenoid, there are two large wires on the solenoid one goes into the starter and the other is from the battery. A smaller wire is needed for energising the solenoid. When you turn the key the solenoid is energized becoming an electromagnet, this does two things, 1 engages with the engine 2 connects the two heavy poles to spin the starter and start the engine .
Check you have refitted the wires correctly

Ignition switch wire diagram 95 honda goldwing se


The problem is either a bad ground, or the starter solenoid. Use a multimeter to check voltage between the + on the battery and the frame, then on the motor. You should get 12 volts. If you do, the ground should be good. Now check the solenoid. There is a hot wire from the battery to one pole, and the other pole to the starter. There are also little wires coming off the side that power everything else. Check for votage between the - on your battery and the + on the solenoid from your battery. If you have power again, check power on the smaller wires on the solenoid. If they have power, your keyswitch is bad. If not, the solenoid is bad

It appears the polarities on my original 2008 yamaha r1 battery are not correct is this common. I removed it and put it on a battery tender. The red hot wire only reaches the negative connector on...


If the cables fit fine before you removed it and now don't, either you are putting the wrong battery back in....or you need to turn the battery around so the terminals are close to their proper cables.
Never reverse the cable connections,

I got a new starter and it still didnt work could it be alternator and does this also affect battery power for it to turn over


YOU SHOULD HAVE YOUR BATTERY AND ALTERNATOR TESTED.IF THEY DO END UP TESTING O.K,THEN YOU MAY NEED THE STARTER SOLENOID THAT BOLTS TO THE CAR ,NOT THE ONE ON THE STARTER ,REPLACED.YOU CAN CHECK IT BY CROSSING IT OVER WITH A SCREWDRIVER ACROSS THE TWO LARGE COPPER POSTS,IF THAT MAKES THE CAR START,THEN REPACE IT.IF THE CAR STILL DOES NOT START,MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD GROUND TO THE STARTER.

How to wire the solenoid on riding lawn mower


The large red cable from the battery should go to the large terminal on one side of the solenoid. The opposite side of the battery solenoid connection goes to the starter So now you have a heavy cable going from the battery to one side of the solenoid and another heavy cable (red) going to the starter connection. There should also be a small wire coming from the ignition switch to the small terminal on solenoid. If there are two small terminals on solenoid, ground the other one. To test the ignition switch, just turn the key and see if you get 12 volts, then you know that part is good. If not, check your ignition switch. So, back to the solenoid-----. If there are two small solenoid terminals with nuts for wires on the solenoid then the wires could be mixed up. So just reverse the two small wires and try again.

You would think they would make things easy and say on the solenoid, Battery connection here, and Starter connection here, and ignition switch wire here, but no, just nothing for the most part.

So now remember this is nothing more than a lightswitch type of a mechanism where instead of using your finger to flick the switch, we are using a small electric charge to momentarily close the light switch, in this case the starter motor, same idea.

your barking up the wrong gum tree witht the starter motor ,you have an electrical supply problem on the battery terminal area with more than one wire connected or a dodgy earth cable from the engine to the chassis .i would be inclined to check and fit another earth cable from a good connection on the engine -(bell housing) and run it back to battery terminal to eliminate all posibilitys .before anything else ,make you own if you have to but only use copper cable .this is my last question for tonight ,have to go pick er indoors up from work now
