Need some help with a 05 stratus 2.7

Hi all,

I can't seem to get an answer on this from any of the stratus forums. Maybe the intrepid 2.7 will be similar enough to give me an answer on this.

I just swapped a new used 2.7L into an 05 stratus that had a sludged 2.7L. But like an idiot, I forgot the starter wiring. On the starter, there are 4 different things: 1 spade terminal, 2 posts (for + and -), and another wire on the housing of starter. The problem I'm having: I don't know which one is positive and which is negative.

I assumed the wire on the housing of the starter goes to the negative post. That wire is only long enough to reach the closer of the two posts, so I assumed that is the negative. Thus the other is the positive. So I connected the ground wire + wire from the housing of the starter to the closer of the two posts and the positive wire to the battery positive wire.

Does this sound right? Here's a picture of the connection. If anyone has a picture of the starter from a 2.7L intrepid, please let me know. That would help a lot!



Thanks for the help!!

Sweet! Thanks for the vote of confidence. Now if only it would stop raining long enough for me to install everything back.

Problem with this Chrysler wiring

I wired my 2001 Chrysler Sebring Convertible like the picture above, and the new starter I bought started right up. I let the car run for a couple minutes and started smelling electrical fire, when I shut off the car I had a strong smell like an alternator burning out. When I removed the new starter, and disassembled it I found the starter internal wires were burned in half and the armature had a hole burned in it the size of a dime. This is not the way a Chrysler starter is wired. I am guessing the two heavy terminal wires both go on the positive solenoid post, and the post with the wire extending from the solenoid to the starter is only for that. I am installing the second new starter today I hope I have this right.
