Question about 1996 GMC Sierra

Open Question

96gmc Sierra , got a new multifunction switch but the harness it plugs into has broken teeth. How would I fix that?

Should I wire in a new connector ? The middle plugs is starter and stuff like that right? How bad can you make things, if I were to wire in a new connector?

    Had new starter motor fitted, but stll have to push to start.


    Hello, You need to check the Starter Relay. The Starter Relay connects the Battery to the Starter when you turn the Key to Start. There are 1 or 2 small wires that connect on the Starter Relay.

    The idea is the Key sends power to the small wire to make the Starter Relay work. You need to test the Starter Relay. Have your car in Neutral and out of gear. You can use a jumper cable and bypass the Starter Relay by connecting one end of the Single jumper cable to the terminal connector from the Battery where it mounts on the Starter Relay. The other end will be live, hot, and full of power so watch where you lay it.

    Then there will be sparks when you touch the end of the jumper cable to the mounting connector coming from the Starter where it bolts onto the Starter Relay. The Starter should crank. This will mean the new Starter is good. You can use any metal tool to bypass the Starter Relay if you do not have a jumper cable. Be Careful, the tool can melt and burn you.

    One final test is needed. The small wires I mentioned earlier are important to making the Starter Relay work. You need to see if the small wire is getting power when the Ignition Key is turned to Start. You need a test light or Voltmeter to show if the small wire is providing power. If the small wire is providing power, then you need to replace the Starter Relay and you are good to go.

    If you are not getting power through the small wire, then you must trace down the problem. There is a Safety switch on the clutch linkage or Brake linkage which must be pressed before it lets the Starter work. This is called an Interlock switch. There can also be a safety switch in the shift linkage which must be in Neutral before allowing the Starter to work. These get power from the Ignition switch which may also be bad.

    You most likely fixed the problem just by replacing the Starter Relay. If you do not want to test, just buy a Starter Relay. I gave you extra information for bad switches and how to pinpoint the problem and this time you might not need to know this stuff.

    I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

    Im wondering how easy it is to get at an igniter, where it is, how much stuff is hooked up to it,


    auto parts stores or salvage yards can get this for you around $100 average, so make sure that this is what you need. Most are located on fender wells of engine compartment, trace middle or "coil" wire from distributor cap to it. Some vehicles have multiple igniters feeding one or two plugs each. ( example: Some Volvos have one on the end of each spark plug). 2 to 4 wires on it usually in a plastic connector and spark plug wire to cap (or plug)

    poor ground, check the wire harness, this is the one that comes from front of vehicle to the rear and plugs into the wires that go to the rear lights. trace the wire coming out of the light itself and eventually you will see that it comes to a connector that attaches to the wiring harness.

    Need wiring diagram for a 1997 ford f 150 p/u 4wd


    The field wire to the starter has a small eyelet connector that connects to the small terminal on the starter solenoid (sometimes marked "S").

    All other wires have a large eyelet connector and they are all connected together with the battery cable to the large terminal on the starter solenoid (sometimes marked "BAT").

    Sometimes the field wire to the starter is a push on type connector, and there would only be one obvious terminal on the starter solenoid that it could be connected to.
