94 chevy s10 car stared before putting a new starter in i put in the new starter an nothing happened. i have tried tracing wires and its pretty difficult but i have checked the battery it is fine and...


I know on a lot of these gm starters there is two places you can hook the smaller wire on the starter. If so you probably have it hooked to the wrong one even if you look at the old starter and it looked to be hooked to that one try hooking it to the other one.

1988 460 motorhome starting problem


When its hooked up, you should be able to put 12 volts on the little stud on the solenoid and it should start. One large stud will have 12 volts on it, so just jump it right there. Did you get the wires in the right place. The solenoid should have 1 large wire going down to the starter. Be sure the battery cables are clean and tight ( both ends) Check battery voltage when cranking, should go to 10-11 volts. Check voltage between negative terminal on battery and engine, should be ZERO when cranking. The solenoid has 2 large studs, make sure the battery positive wire and all the other wires are hooked to this stud, the other large stud should just have the wire going to the starter.

Replacing starter solenoid


You may have hooked some wires up incorrectly. The smaller diameter wires on the small posts go to different items. One goes to the starter and the other to the ignition. Sometimes the little black bonnets that plug on to the terminals are marked. (S for starter and I for ignition.) You can also jump across the terminals to bypass the ignition switch to see if you even get power to the starter. Let me know what happens.

1993 saturn sc1 new starter now no power at all


Are all wires connected? There should be a fusable link that goes from the alternator to the larger terminal on the starter then a red cable that goes from the larger terminal starter to the battery.

A smaller gauge purple wire connects to the smaller terminal on the starter. This is for ignition.

Where is the starter located and what tool are required to remove


you have to look with a flash light depending on the vehicle, go under the vehicle and look left to the right of the bottom of the engine and you should see a elongated part no bigger than 12 inches(smaller) and it will have no more than three wires with a smaller cylinder attacked to it. most of the time there will be 3 bolts or nuts holding it on. tools= socket set; standard for domestic vehicles and metric for import vehicles, open end wrenches and wire cutters(just in case). most of the time on domestic cars you will use a size of 1/2 to 9/16 for you tools. start with disconnecting the battery then remove the starter. when putting the new one on just turn the teeth on the starter to line up with the wheel in the engine, you will see that when you remove the old starter. splice the new power wire if needed for the power, a new wire should come with the new starter if it is needed. hook the battery back up and enjoy!

My starter


the wires might be fried also, check them with a meter to see if the smaller wire has voltage without key in. if so, the wire might be shorting out to 12 volt wire or the ignition switch is bad.
