Question *!starter!*

anyone know what the small wire goes to that connects to the starter? i suppose i could follow it but that doesn't gaurantee ill know what it is that its hooked to. reason i acks is because when i go to start the truck the starter starts wiggin out and clickin like a dead battery but at the same time still turns the motor over fast enough to start it that little wire is on the post its supposed to be on but its not bolted down good and does not have a good connection cuz i cant find a nut that fits that little thing. lol. just wondering if that little wire would make my starter do that. someone should pull theirs off and see what it does LOL jk. anyone ever had that?

Yes, that little wire is more than likely the cause...bad connection but good enough to still crank it. If the starter is wiggin out, i would think it's the solenoid wire. PUT A NUT ON IT before you smoke your solenoid.

i agree with chenry ,youll burn up your starter solenoid and or wiring due to high resistance in that circuit if you keep starting it like that
