I have a 92 Chevy Bretta with the 3.1 V6.
The problem I am having started when my son replaced the ignition, which was
done by removing the starter...not there is one 'extra' wire where we don't
know where it goes.
The Starter has 3 terminals, 'BATT', 'SWITCH', 'MOTOR'. The couple of wires
coming out of the harness that need to be bolted on to the starter
terminal...I have having trouble figuring out which wire goes where.
up to now, I seem to have gotten the Batt and the Ignition switch wires
correctly connected, deciphering from the gauge of the wires (Batt wire is
very thick, and the switch wire is very thin). I have 2 more wires from the
harness that need to be bolted somewhere and only 1 more terminal available.
I do not know which of the 2 wires left I should bolt and what to do with
the one left over.
I tried different combinations, where I connected both of the 'left over'
wire to the empty 'Motor' terminal, in this case the car didn't start at
When I tried to put one of the left over wires to the Batt terminal and the
other one left on the Motor terminal the car started, but the solenoid
didn't switch off after it did, so the starter kept running, when I switched
it the other way around, the car didn't start at all.
Any help would be much appreciated.
