Starter not engaging flywheel
I've spent the afternoon working on wiring the M20 into my 2002. To start off I want to just make the starter spin the engine, and then go from there.
I can hear the starter spin up, but it does not engage the flywheel. This means the solenoid isn't engaging, right?
Here's what I did:
Jumper cables from battery sitting on ground (battery is good). The black jumper cable went to a piece of metal sticking off the intake manifold, and the red wire went to the terminal with the big red wire on the starter motor. I connected the green 2002 voltage regulator wire to +12 and the e30 black/yellow starter wire to the 2002 starter wire. Then I turned the ignition switch. I hear the starter spin very fast, but it isn't engaging the flywheel.
Is there a separate wire for the solenoid?
