If the car does not turn over after the solenoid is replaced, that means the problem was not the starter solenoid. The problems lays elsewhere in the electrical system.

The starter solenoid on a Honda Element is integral to the starter. It cannot be replaced without replacing the starter as well.

The starter solenoid is located on top of the starter. It is the small cylinder attached to the starter. It is a part of the starter which can be replaced/repaired independent from the starter itself.

Starter solenoid? Follow the + battery cable - connects to solenoid - may be at the inner fender wall

If your 1999 Ford Mustang cranks but won't turnover you may have a problem with the starter, the solenoid, or the alternator.

The starter solenoid is close to the battery of your car. Follow the red battery cable to reach the solenoid. Use your car's manual for any help.

I DO BELIEVE THE SOLENOID IS MOUNTED ON THE STARTER AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO REPLACE THE STARTER TO REPLACE THE SOLENOID remove the starter and take it down to your local auto parts store. they can bench test the starter and give you the proper solenoid if it needs to be replaced.

The starter solenoid can be replaced by removing the wiring harness. Remove the retaining nuts. The solenoid will come off. Reverse the process to install the new solenoid.

The starter on a 1965 classic mustang is located on the passenger side of the engine at the rear. You should be able to follow the red battery cable to the starter solenoid (relay) and then down to the starter ::AverageJoeResto.com::

The starter solenoid is located on the starter. It would be more cost-effective to have the entire starter replaced with a good remanufactured unit on this application.

The wire from the battery to solenoid is corroded & should be replaced.

Should be at the lower rear end of the engine - follow the cable from starter solenoid

the starter solenoid only engages the starter when the key switch is activated. the alternator is what charges the battery which is located under or along side the flywheel

The starter solenoid is on the starter. It's the smaller cylinder-shaped part of the starter assembly - the other is the starter motor itself. Unless you're lucky enough to find a local shop that offers the solenoid separately - or repair it for you, the most common repair is a new/rebuilt starter. See "Related Questions" below for more Integral to the starter. The starter solenoid is integrated into the body of the starter, and cannot be replaced separately. You will need to replace the entire starter assembly. there are many solenoids on that car. I am assuming you mean the starter solenoid? If so, it piggybacks on the starter. Integral to the starter. The starter solenoid is integrated into the body of the starter, and cannot easily/readily be replaced separately. You will need to replace the entire starter assembly. The starter solenoid is attached to the starter using a couple of screws. It is the part that the wires connect to. Unhook the wires and remove the two screws that mount it to the starter to remove.

Using the starter solenoid jump the small middle terminal with the starter terminal at the rear of the solenoid

Excess cranking, constant supply of current to the solenoid, or it just plain fizzled out.

It can be a defective starter assembly that causes this problem. There are two parts to a starter assembly: the starter motor and the starter solenoid. The offending culprit is usually the starter solenoid, and it should be replaced.
