The large post in the center of the solenoid is for the main lead coming from the battery, the two 12 guage wires coming from the alternator, and one side of the momentary switch used for the start circuit (usually coming from the ignition switch) Since this post is always hot, you can also use it to drive other circuits that need full battery voltage. The small post closest to the engine is for the other side of the momentary switch.

Where is the starter in a 92 Nissan Sentra and where do the bolts to it go?

I have a 94 Nissan sentra but it's the same body style. My starter is located right below all the air intake hoses. the easiest way to find the starter is to take the airbox stuff out and then follow the ground wire from the negative end of the battery (the only wire leading off the negative end) to where it attatches to the transmission. The bolt that that wire attatches to is one of two bolts that attatches the starter to the transmission.

How do you fix or find a short in a wire that causes the starter fuse on a 2004 Dodge Neon to keep blowing?

Disconnect the wire at the starter and try the ignition. My guess is that the starter itself is the problem. If the fuse does not blow then it is the starter, if it does blow then go to the relay center in the engine compartment and check the starter relay. Work your way back to the ignition switch.

changing a starter on a Nissanfirst jack vehicle up of get jack stand either way. then unhook battery cable. then on the right side look toward bottom of engine by following the positive cable of the starter that will lead you to your starter. then take notice or draw or mark where each wire goes to. use a marked if needed. there will be a big wire which is the red wire or positive wire and then the little wire which will attach to the solonoid. drop starter by going under vehicle and taking down two or three bolts different year vary in bolts.

Where is the starter of a 1990 F-350 cargo van and how do you replace it?

The starter is located on the lower right hand side of the engine, and it will be bolted to the bellhousing of the transmission with two 1/2" or 13MM bolts. If it has only one wire going to it, you won't have to dis-connect the battery. The easiest way to tell this without crawling under, is if you know what the solenoid looks like that would be attached to the radiator support, behind the battery. If it doesn't, or the starter has more than one wire going to it, then the battery will have to be dis-connected. Remove the two bolts, and if the starter has one wire, a 3/8" or 10MM wrench will remove the bolt for the wire terminal. -Remove the wire first. Then the bolts for the starter, and pull it out, and drop it down.

How do you change a starter on a 1986 Honda 350 trx?

1st Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Then remove the fuel pump and then the starter gear cover. Remove the gear on the right - it just pulls out if it did not come off with the cover. Then undo the two bolts for the starter. Slide it to the right and pull back. Remember it is still attached to the power wire so once accessable disconnect and remove the rest of the way.

How do I replace the starter on a 1974 Volkswagen van?

Acquire starter disconnect battery crawl underneath and locate starter, it's on the passenger side of the engine near the transmission. Remove and mark wires remove starter, Replace starter by reversing procedure. If it will still not turn over google a starter relay kit for VWs , install kit to fix problem. The first thing you need to do, before you go through all that, is to figure out if you really NEED a starter. To do so you'll need a set of jumper cables, a foot of wire with push-ons crimped onto both ends of it and a set of wheelchocks. Start by putting the car in neutral and chocking the wheels so you don't get run over. Next, remove the center wire from the distributor so the car won't start. Look at the starter. You'll see where the wires go into it. There are two--a fat one that bolts on (the battery is at the other end of this wire) and a thin one with a push-on on it (the ignition switch is at the other end of this one). Unhook the ignition switch wire and replace it with the foot of wire. Hook a jumper cable between the positive pole on your battery and the bolted-on wire--make sure to not let the clamp touch anything else under there because that would cause unbelievable problems. Then touch the free end of the foot of wire to the side of the jumper clamp. If the starter cranks the engine, it's good. You next need to narrow down which of the two wires is your problem. You do this by unhooking the jumper cable and touching the free end of the wire going to the bendix prong to the bolt you took the jumper cable clamp off. If the engine cranks, it's the bendix wire. It usually IS the bendix wire, because it has to run all the way from the back of the car to the front, then back to the back, and your car is wired with 34-year-old wire. Wire goes bad, especially when it's in a high-heat condition like...oh, right next to the transmission. You can fix the wire the right way or the easy way, and both work. The right way is to buy 50 feet of wire and pull two new wires to the front of the car. (This is a heck of a lot easier than it is on a Bug.) The easy way is to stick a foglight relay in there.

How do you bypass a starter?

Well, there's no real way to bypass a starter on an car with an automatic transmission. On a manual, you can push the car and pop the clutch to make the engine turn over. There is a way to determine if your starter is working but your starter solenoid isn't. You arc the two terminals on the starter (with the car in park/parking brake on) with a screwdriver or piece of wire. If the starter turns/sounds normal, it's most likely the solenoid.

Which wire goes where on a starter?

Depending on the vehichle, you may only have one wire going to the starter, which would be the positive wire from the battery. In addition to this wire, many vehicles have a wire or pair of wires going to the solenoid housing on the starter. The positive wire is a very thick, heavy wire, which usually will have a loop terminal at the end, which fits over a post on the starter, which has a nut that threads down to secure the positive wire.Often wire lengths will give you a hint as to where they should be connected, and wires frequently are bent to fit the connections. Be careful if you are guessing on where the solenoid wires connect, because a mistake could fry the solenoid.In AdditionMany vehicles may have an additional, fairly heavy wire that runs to the same post as the battery. This wire makes its way to the alternator and is the location of the charging system fuseable link.
