Disconnect your NEGATIVE battery cable so you don't short out the system. Remove the 2 bolts that hold it on and disconncet all electrical connetcions on the starter. Do the opposite to reinstall. Make sure noen of your wires onteh starter are to close or contacting the engine block or associated parts. Hook up the negative battery cable and see if it starts ok. You may have to reset your radio and other electronic things onthe car afterdisconnecting the battery. Don't worry about the computer it will relearn everything very quick.
