starter cranks over when i hook the battery cable up
My starter turns over when I hook up the battery terminal. I have switched the wires around and it still does it. I replaced the wiring going down to the starter, so its all new. The starter is new also. I went as far as changing the steering column. This is on a 1978 z28 camaro.. any help will be appreciated.

s terminal should only have 12v when the key is in start
if you tried a different starter likely its in the wiring like f

I have seen solenoids with out the spot for the tab to hold the positive cable in the right position or a positive cable without the tab cause this. When you install the positive cable it can lay over into the s terminal. Most likely this is your issue if the solenoid is not broken.
