So what is the box called that connects the battery to the starter to the ignito
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
And what does it entail to replace it
Expert:  James replied 2 years ago.
Are you referring to the starter solenoid? It has two large posts and one or two small posts. This sends high current to engage the starter. Either it can be bad or it the starter itself can be bad. If you have a test light I can go over testing it with you.
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
