Electrical problem
1998 Pontiac Sunfire 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 110000 miles

Will not start. Put new starter on. Will not start. I can bang on starter a few times, turn key, it will start.
Battery is good. All dash lights are good. Can it be some wiring from starter to batteryto solenoid. I can hear a click sometimes when I turn key. Once or twice I heard a HMMM. A dealer said its in ignition switch or starter. I am a 55 year old woman trying the best I got. Thanks. Becki

At the starter motor solenoid there's a battery terminal on it and a small terminal which has a purple wire-short this two terminals if the starter engages the engine-starter is okay check the park and neutral switch and ignition switch
