Remove both terminals and check with a test light the one that has the start signal goes to the s terminal. You my have reversed them.

If the start signal is right and shuts off when you release the key. Youll need to replace the seloniod. If no you will have to check the ingition switch.

If I put the key in the start position, the truck will start but the starter keeps going. With the key out of the ignition I have to keep the negative terminal off the battery or it will try to start and it gets stuck on. It has a brand new starter, seloniod, ignition switch, battery and cables. I was driving and when I turned the truck off it wouldnt start and acted dead so I bought new battery and ect.

WHEN CHANGING/ MESSING WITH THE SOLENOID--DID YOU PUT ACCESSORIES ON THE POS BATTERY CABLE SIDE, OR DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING ON THE STARTER SIDE AS WELL. STARTER SHOULD BE BY ITSELF ON THE SOLENOID

I have the starter cable by itself to the selenoid. On the other side of the selenoid I have the positive cable and three smaller wires. The s wire by itself.

OK

LET'S DO THIS (I THINK I HAVE YOUR SOLENOID IN MY HAND, FROM PAP'S '86 T-BIRD)

ONLY MARKINGS I SEE IS "S" AND "I"

INSURE YOUR "S" WIRE IS CONNECTED TO "S" TERMINAL

IF IT WAS RIGHT

REVERSE YOUR STARTER AND BATTERY ON THE BIG POSTS--INSURE THE LITTLE WIRES STAY WITH THE BATTERY CABLE. STARTER ALL BY ITSELF ----XXXXXX--- UNLESS THE SOLENOID IS MARKED "BATTERY" AND "STARTER"

CAN'T HURT NOTHIN' NOW!

REMEMBER THIS TOOEVEN BRAND NEW STUFF CAN BE BAD!
