Hi your dealer can determine if your vehicle came with the solenoid. You will have to include vin #. Make sure you inspect the teeth on the fly wheel. same voltage should kick the starter out. you can jump starter while in car also
All the teeth are good. when we turn the key the starter spins but won't engage while the starter was out I tested it on a battery and the solenoid kicks the gear back and forth. like I say the part they sold me mounts to the fender but the starter Ithat is in the vehicle looks to have a solenoid on it so I am not sure if this new part is in addition to what the starter has on it
I will bring a diagram of starter system for you.
Okay what I bought looks like #5 the switch but I'll be D@#$ if I can find it in this thing
The starter solenoid could be grounding out and out of the vehicle could not grounding also. I will get a location for you
follow battery cables or starter cables to it
k just a sec
still not finding it
I follow cables to the pwr dist box and to starter
You have a couple of diagrams listed its kinda wierd be right back
they both have the starter relay solenoid.
well...are they both supposed to be in the same place?
yes is your 98 older towards at 97 or new towards a 99 I will check thier application
Build date is 11/97
ok I will check
lets see if this helps.
unfortunately no, where it shows them is my ABS module and no tach or aux relay box
what size and type engine do you have there are like 3 kinds of 4.0
4.0l V6 SOHC
.I am going to opt out so another expert might be able to help.
The starter relay is in the power distribution box, in the engine compartment. The solenoid is located on the starter motor. I have included pics and diagramms of the power distribution box, located on the left side of the engine compartment along the fender. Due to the size the power distribution box will come as 2 pages, you may want to print them as they will over lap one another.
