How do you hook up an ignition switch to a starter?

The big purple wires connect the relay to the starter. This is the quickest way to connect the vehicle’s ignition switch to the LS starter. The plug-and-play nature of an aftermarket harness combined with its relative affordability makes it the best option, plus it generally looks better than a hacked-up stock harness.

Is there more than one way to build an LS engine?

Although the factory systems are certainly adequate, the aftermarket has fully embraced the LS platform and there is definitely more than one way to do it right. If you picked up an engine from a salvage yard or other used vehicle, you need all the electrical components to go with it. Let me repeat: it is imperative to get everything.

How does the throttle pedal work on an LS engine?

On many LS engines, even the throttle is computer controlled; the pedal is connected to a sensor box that tells the throttle how much to open. These systems can be overwhelming, but the key is to tackle one circuit at a time.

What does the purple wire go to on a starter?

This protects the wiring from chaffing on the body, causing grounds and the possibility of fires. These wires are the stock ignition connectors for most GM cars. The big purple wires connect the relay to the starter. This is the quickest way to connect the vehicle’s ignition switch to the LS starter.

Where does the purple wire go on a starter?

Your purple wire gets the 12 volts when the key is in the start position, which goes through the neutral safety switch and goes to the s stud of the starter solenoid. The yellow wire should go to the opposite side stud r and it goes to the + side of the coil.

What wires go to the starter solenoid?

Many DIYers wonder: What wires go to the starter solenoid? Typically, a starter-mounted solenoid has three terminals with three connections: The “B” or “battery” terminal: The terminal that connects the solenoid directly to the positive battery cable.

How does the neutral safety switch work on a starter?

As long as the neutral safety switch is in the park position (or the clutch safety switch is closed), the relay closes, allowing voltage to flow to the starter solenoid. The solenoid then engages the starter to crank the engine.

Where does the power come from when the starter is engaged?

When the starter is engaged, full 12 volts is sent to the coil from the starter and when you let go of the key the 12 volts is removed and the power comes from the ballast wire or resistor. Check out the link below and click on your years wiring diagrahm.
