Every 12v starter are constructed the same. The starter solenoid has three terminals. 1- A large terminal with two wires - large battery cable and a smaller wire feeding power to the alternator. This terminal is hot all the time since it's a direct feed from the battery. 2-Next to it is a small terminal -this is the 'S' terminal. Jumper across these two terminals with a hand held remote starter clipped to these two terminals or screwdriver to see if the starter powers up. Be sure the xmission is in park or neutral otherwise the car can move since you're deliberately bypassing everything. 3-The other large terminal has a braided wire to feed battery power from the switched solenoid contacts to power the start motor.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
