Hi. Maybe you can help. Have a starting issue with 1996 Chev Cavalier. Charging/battery are fine. Had initial clinking clunking, jiggled connections, got it started once to get home, now nothing. Full power, but no activity to starter(solenoid?)
So, went back to hand-checking connections. One supplemental(?) Wire to main solenoid terminal bent and snapped at it's connecting ring.
There are FIVE wires in total connecting to solenoid.
THREE go to main post which includes POS battery connection, a black one coming from a very large fat bundle, and a mystery wire which broke at the eyelet.
The broken "mystery wire" comes out of a smaller bundle, as do the remaining TWO wires to the solenoid - each of those TWO going to the other two individual terminals on the solenoid.
The "mystery wire" seems not to be easily spliced or reconnected.
I had hoped maybe this was the cause of not getting a signal to the starter. Now, I'm wondering, is it an essential component, and how might I establish a connection here. It seems like something like fiber-optic, although I doubt that. It just isn't your common wire.
Thanks for being available!
have the same problem?
