Electrical problem
1993 Chevy Suburban V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic

Just replaced the starter and when I try to hook up the negative battery cable it attempts to start. What could be wrong?

Starter solenoid could be sticking or a faulty ignition switch.

The power comes from the ignition switch thru the NSS and then to starter. The NSS has power only when the ignition switch is in the cranking positon-If you hook up the starter correctly-your problem is the ignition switch-

How many small terminals do you have on the starter if you have 2 switch it around and see what happens.

The purple wire goes to the S terminal the other wire goes on the R which is the ignition by pass if it continues to crank -the solenoid is shorting out if not were right back to the ignition switch.

The purple wire has another wire leading from it but it was never hooked up on my old starter. By the way where does the purple wire lead to?
