  1. Make sure you have the anti-theft code for the radio, then write down the customer's radio station presets.

  2. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery first, then disconnect the positive cable.

  3. Remove the resonator.

  1. Disconnect the starter cable (A) from the B terminal on the solenoid, then disconnect the BLK/WHT wire (B) from the S terminal.

  2. Remove the two bolts holding the starter, then remove the starter.

  3. Install in the reverse order of removal. Make sure the crimped side of the ring terminal (A) is facing out.

  4. Connect the positive cable to the battery first, then connect the negative cable.

  5. Start the engine to make sure the starter works properly.

  6. Enter the anti-theft code for the radio, then enter the customer's radio station presets.

  7. Set the clock.
