I found the info you want but it is impossible for me to explain because I am learning about these trucks myself.
I bought a 1984 B2000 workshop manual from Mazda for around $17.00 and it has full instruction for everything for your truck including a full teardown.
The information you want on Chapter 5: page 10 It has full pictures and exploded view of starting motor and solenoid.
I wish I could be more of a help because I DO know the frustration. I am going through it myself with a part that I can't find what it does. I even put up a site to ask for help.
Good luck on your B2000 because if you can keep it running, it's a great little truck.
the solenoid is on the starter. It's the part the wires go into.
Usually it's attached to the starter. Imagine two cans of beer, a 16oz and a 12oz, tape them together and you got the starter and starter solenoid. If someone told you to replace that, you should replace the starter because they cost just about the same.
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.
right side of the engine bay, on the starter. if it's broken, it will click, that will help you identify it. you can buy a manual at the auto store and return it if you're low on cash.
The starter solenoid is the small bump or cylinder attached to the actual starter motor body. It will be the part with all the wiring connections.
Hi, starter is behind engine under the intake
where is the transmission shift solenoid located on a 2001 Mazda protege
Follow + battery cable should connect to solenoid
Fusible links are generally located close to the main power source such as the battery or accessory solenoid.
I have a 99 Mazda 626 and my starter is located right next to the oil filter.
Where is starter on a 4 cylinder mazda 626?
The 1997 Mazda 626 starter is located near the back of the engine at the bottom. You can follow the positive battery cable from the battery to the starter.
the starter is located between transmission and engine down intake manifold
i have a 98 Mazda b3000 auto 4x4. where are the shift solenoids located
99 mazda b3000 where is the speed sensor located
If your 1995 Mazda pickup won't start, you might have a dead battery or a starter that is broken or damaged. You might also have bad gas or an empty gas tank.
There are two posts on the starter solenoid when the starter is in position the top one is for the positive battery cable. The bottom one should have a very short cable that enters the starter casing. I just replaced the starter in my 98 mazda protege yesterday.
In the alternator
The starter on a 1996 Mazda B3000 is located near the battery terminal. To change it, first unbolt the negative cable from the battery terminal and raise the right front corner of the Mazda B3000 with a jack. Unbolt the starter wiring and thread the mounting bolts through the starter. Finally, reconnect the starter wiring.
Either Discharged battery or poor/loose battery or starter connections or solenoid contact need replacing
The starter, on a 1994 Mazda Protege, is located on the driver's side of the engine. It is just behind and to the right of the oil fill cap.
Usually when this happens the starter solenoid has failed -- remove the starter and have it checked/rebuilt. Some auto parts stores can run a check for you also.
its inside the transmission by the oil pan
Probably starter solenoid switch
Disconnect the battery. The starter is located on the back side of the engine (the side closest to the firewall). Undo the main battery cable from the starter solenoid (held in place with a nut and washer). Disconnect the two smaller leadwires (push-on connector) from the solenoid. There are three bolts holding the starter to the bellhousing and either one or two bolts holding the support bracket from the starter to the engine block. Remove all the bolts and then the starter can be taken out by passing it underneath the intake/injection manifold and taking out the passenger side of the engine compartment (right side if facing forward).
