Looking for a simple wiring diagram of the starting system battery thru starter
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer, I'm AL.This is the only diagram I can find. Hope this helps.Best of luck AL
Very difficult to read (fuzzy), plus I don't see the starter.
I tried blowing it up, and I also circled the starter in red.
Thanks for trying. The resolution on my end isn't crisp enough to read the small writing.
Maybe I should have just ask specifically what I'm confused about,
#1. my vehicle I have 4 lines/wire into the starter relay and this has 2. "+" side
#2. I have a ground on the back end of my starter that's cut, I wondered where it was originally suppose to be connected.
Just bought the truck yesterday and the Haynes repair manual doesn't cut it.
This is a picture of the relay.It appears to have 5 fusible links connected to one side of it. If you only have 2, the fuse links may have burned and are hanging somewhere. Look for burned looking wires near the relay.The ground at the starter should be the main engine ground that bolts either to a bell housing bolt, or one of the starter bolts. Look for one of the bolts to have a stud on it.
