The rule for "ANY" battery is always disconnect the negative (black) first before the repairs, and connect it back last at the end of the repairs. Then you can disconnect the cable and wire at the starter when you lower it. Check your specs, most GM starters need to be "shimmed" when reinstalled. This is imperitive and do not believe any parts store that tells you their starter does not require shims. This is bull and if you do not install it correctly later you'll be replacing the ring gear/flexplate and it ain't cheap. Take it from a GM certified mechanic. Also when you disconnect the battery do not be surprised if the vehicle does not run the same after, as it did before as the computer will have to relearn your driveability on controlling the engine/transmission. On a 1996 this is fairly fast and usually does not take more than a couple of hours of driving. Good Luck
you've got your wires crossed on your starter,
I am currently having the same issue. First unhook the battery completely. Then you need to find where the wires on the starter are connected to the battery. Detach the wires from the starter that go to the battery. Once you have the starter wires completely detached from battery you can start removal of starter from engine block.
check your starter wires there should be wires going to 2 different places on the starter, 1 large gage wire to the copper terminal and 1 smaller to activate the solenoid
The Starter on a 1995 Mustang THe starter is located at the bottom of the engine near just off the flywheel. Disconnect the battery, then the wires going to the starter, unbolt the old starter, bolt in the new starter, attach the wires, connect the battery and you're done.
Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery, remove the two bolts from the starter, drop the starter enough to disconnect the wires from it and remove the starter from the engine.
Disconnect the positive battery cable and then take out the starter bolts and remove the wires/ then put the wires onto the new starter, put the stater back on and then put the battery cable back on.
Need to check the battery conections and the starter wires and starter.
disconnect power from battery, remove wires connected to starter, remove bolts from starter (usually 2), remove starter.
disconnect cables at battery,then remove wires from starter,then take out 3 mounting bolts that hold starter in,sometimes you can remove wires when starter is out, if they are long enough.
If its anything like a 93 all you do is disconnect the battery, disconnect and mark for reinstallation the wires at the starter. Remove the two bolts that hold it, and drop it out. Make sure to hold on to any shims that might be there.
Disconnect the battery. unhook the wires from the starter, then unbolt the unit. Drop the starter and bolt the new one in. Reconnect the wiring and battery.
disconnect the battery, then the wires from the starter. Then remove the bolts holding the starter to the engine.
disconnect battery. Diconnect wires from starter. Unbolt starter and pull it out. Simple.
follow the wires that come off the positive battery terminal the starter has two bolts to take off then the starter comes off then unhook the power wires from starter
To remove the starter motor, disconnect the battery first. Take a picture, if possible, so that the new starter can be put back in place the same as the old one was. Disconnect the wires and remove the starter bolts. Remove the starter and replace with a new one. Hook up the wires and the battery.
Since you changed your battery and starter I'm assuming you are getting fuel and spark is your problem. You should check your starter relay, the wires from the relay to your starter, the wires from your battery to the relay, the wires from your locking cylinder to the relay, and your locking cylinder. You might also check your alternator. You can take it to a parts store to have it bench tested for free.
Disconnect the battery. Remove the wires from the starter then unbolt it. Lower the starter, then fit the new one in. Bolt up the starter and connect the wiring. Reconnect the battery.
First remove the Negative terminal from the battery ...then disconnect the wires attached to the starter taking note where you took the wires from....then theres two bolts that hold the starter to the engine block..remove them both....and reinstall your new starter bolting it to the engine first then attaching your wires.. then put the negative cable back on the battery
Did you just put a starter on it ??? Sounds like the starter wires are on the starter wrong are thay are shorted out. CHECK THE WIRES GOING TO THE STARTER CLOSELY.
Ever tried replacing the starter negative battery cable is often overlooked double check it and replace any corroded wires or battery clamps
Look to the front left of the engine where the transmission mounts to it, you will see the starter there and it has several large wires bolted to it. Remove those wires ( after you have disconnected the battery ) and then remove the two bolts holding the starter on, replace with the new one and reconnect the wires, then reconnect the battery and off you go.
The starter needs a large wire from the battery and a wire from the starter switch. These are connected to the solenoid that is attached to the starter.
remove the neg battery cable then the wires on the starter. Then take out the mounting bolts and work the starter out.
To replace the starter on the 2001 Lincoln Town car, first remove the battery cables from the battery. Then, remove the three wires from the starter. Then, remove the bolts holding the starter in place. The starter will then be easy to lift out of the vehicle. Replace the starter by first bolting the new starter in place and then adding the three wires.
