Chev Venture Starter Solenoid Wiring Sign In


I have a 2003 Chevy Venture, 3.4L V6 engine with about 150k miles. I replaced the starter today but failed to look/mark the wiring when I took the old one out. Blush Long story short, 6 hours and I do not have a running vehicle. I tried a variety of ways to put the wires on. Sometimes the starter motor would start as soon as I tried to hook up the battery, other times nothing. I really need a diagram or detailed description of which wires go where on this thing. Unsure

Please help.

It's pretty simple. The purple wire goes on the small "S" terminal and all the others go on the large terminal with the battery cable.
