Greetings DC members. I need some help here. I'd be the first one to tell you that I'm not much of a DIY'er kind'a guy. My son helped me with the removal of the starter on my C5. He forgot how the wires go connected, and I have no freeking clue. I've tried researching this, but negative results. Can anyone here tell me or show me a diagram of how the wires connect on a replacement starter. Maybe this is the problem I've been having with it. Don't know, but I'm trying to narrow it down.

I'd really appreciate all you technically proficient guy's chimming in!!

Thanx Much!

"Proposed" Starter replacement

klrbee,

On my 2002 Z06, this is how I replaced my starter. Hopefully, the wiring colors remained the same from 2001; I haven't worked on a 2001, so please double check your wiring diagrams if you have them.

Caution: Make sure you originally removed your negative battery terminal lead at the battery before doing this. You probably already have when you removed the starter, but I thought that I would remind others reading this. :laughing:

Firstly, on the "S" terminal, place your supplied washer on the terminal. Then, on my car, I had a "purple" lead wire that I placed on the terminal. Finally, install your nut and torque to spec (my year is 35 lbs in).

Next, my car has a "gray and rust colored" harness. Install these on your solenoid, then follow with your positive battery cable on the same bolt. Replace your positive battery cable nut and torque to spec (my year is 71 lb in).

Finally, after making sure the bottom end is all finished, connect your negative battery terminal, and you are finished.

Hope this helps. Remember, just check your wiring colors.
