I got a big problem here. Okay.... my friend's 91 2.2 had a bad starter. So I attempted to replace it for him. I took the old one out no problem and we had it tested and sure enough the starter motor was bad. So then I go to put the new one in and I notice the solenoid has one big positive terminal and 2 little negative terminals whereas the old starter only had one. So I connected the negative to the terminal that it would have gone on on the old starter. We connect the battery and hear the computer registering and then as we go to start the car we hear a pop under the hood and nothing happens. The noise sounded like a fuse blowing. After that all power throughout the car was lost. So we check the fuse box and we check under the hood and we find nothing. So we try and connect the negative to the other post. Sure enough all the power comes back to the car but the car still won't start. The starter clicks once and doesn't turn over at all. The next day we replaced the fusible links because we thought maybe one of them went bad. So we replaced all the links by the starter and when we tried to turn it on again it still didn't start. The solenoid just clicked once and it didn't turn over. One guy at the local autozone told us that we could have blown a main fuse in the car. He showed us this 80 amp fuse and we went back under his hood to look for it but we couldn't find anything like it. Nothing in his fuse box is blown and the car has no starter relay. What else could be wrong? Oh.... by the way.... the last thing we did was take the new starter in to have it tested to see if maybe it was defective..... but it turned out to be perfectly okay. And my friend also has a brand new battery in the car that's only a week old. What is wrong here? anyone else ever have this problem?
