Hi,

Attach the orange wire (FROM THE ALTERNATOR) to the stud on the starter solenoid that you connect the red battery cable..

Looking at the studded end of the solenoid, the small stud on the right side gets the yellow w/red stripe from the slave solenoid. The strapping coming out of the starter should be connected to one stud already. The empty large stud gets the two red and the orange wires."


The Red/ Yellow wire goes to the Small stud, closest to the block,+ All the other wires go on the vacant Big stud.

Let us know if you want something more else please accept the solution.

Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

    Thank you for your advise. I just noticed that 1 of the red wires is in fact red with a purple stripe. There is a black box(approx 1"X 1") attached and this has a large connector to be attached to a post.



    I'm a little confused. You indicated the orange cable should be attached with the red battery cable but you also said the orange should be with the other red wires. Please clarify. Would a camera shot help?



    There is a wire already attached to 1 of the large posts. Should the battery cable be attached to that post or the empty one?

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.

Both red wires go to the bigger post on the starter. The purple goes to the small post. There should be 2 big post, make sure the red wires go to the one that has nothing else on it cause the other is the ground.

Well, if your starter starts to turn when you hook the battery cable up, then you have hooked the cable to the wrong post on the starter. You have two large posts and one small post on the starter solenoid, the battery cable goes on the large post that has nothing else hooked to it. The other large post should have a large braided cable going into the starter motor housing. If the starter still will not turn the engine over when it is wired correctly then you will need to look closer at the flywheel ring gear.

Most likely goes on ignition side (small eye). If you connect it to large eye it will have power all the time. Small post (eye) only gets power when key is in start or run position. 2 big eye wires are input from battery positive & alternator feed.

Starter solenoid???? 2 large posts and 2 small posts on old one or 2 large and 1 small? the one large wire goes to the starter(rear post), all the others goes on the front post. little wire goes on the little post, if the old one has 4 posts, then you have the wrong solenoid.

Need pictures or exlanation of how to install a starter relay for


It's just an old Chevy starter! On that round starter solenoid, you will see two or three posts. One thick copper post, and one or two small
steel ones. The thick copper post you can't miss. It's about as thick as your little finger. The one, or two, small terminals, (Posts), are the thickness of a ball point pin refill.

You should have the Positive cable that comes down from the battery, connected to the thick post. There should -> also be two or three wires in a small wire loom, that connect to this post. This small wire loom will have a metal round terminal, that has a hole in it, large enough to go over this post. The battery cable goes on first, then this small wire loom terminal. Then a lock washer, and a brass nut.

If you have a solenoid with two small terminals, in the solenoid itself, next to the small posts, you may see -> ST,
and -> R. There should be a single wire, that comes down out of a wiring harness. It will have a round metal terminal end on it, and a hole in it, just large enough to slip over the small post. You want to connect it to the post with -> ST

All that is going on here, is that the solenoid is a magnetic switch.
If it wasn't present, you would have a thick wire, like that battery cable, going up to your ignition key switch. Instead you have a real small wire going to it.

Electricity for other circuits, like the lighting circuit, heat and air circuit, and so on, get their supply from the large solenoid post, also. That's what that two, or three wire, harness is for.

ST stands for Start. This is the Start side of the solenoid. R stands for Resistor. There was a wire used to connect to this small post, and it led up to a resistor mounted on the firewall, of older cars. These cars used a distributor with points in it. A wire went from the resistor over to the distributor.

Your solenoid may not have two small posts. It may just have one, with ST next to it, Or -> S

Wiring for a 1993 ford f150 starter


not correct
the negative wire should be attached under the head of a mounting bolt for the starter
the circuit is that the power goes into the positive terminal ( big terminal) through the solenoid when activated out the second big terminal through the fields and armature to ground
the power to activate the solenoid is either from a power wire from the ignition switch to a small terminal on the solenoid through the windings to ground that activates the solenoid and closes a set of contacts in the solenoid to allow the power across the 2 big terminals
