    This is one job that can actually be done with your eyes closed as it can be done by feel. Disconnect the battery and with your left hand feel for the main battery cable connection. Then move your hand straight toward the block some 10mm to feel the male spade connection on the solenoid.

    Hi Jeff,
    Having two small wires is quite common actually. The small red wire, which is attached to the same terminal as the large battery cable, goes to the fusebox. It is the black wire that may be the source of the starter problem as this is the wire that energizes the starter when the key is turned. The end of the wire should have a female spade connector (a push-on type connector) that can loosen up over time and in some cases, even fall off. The female connector can be 'repaired' by gently squeezing the end with a pliers which will restore the mechanical connection with the male connector and hence, the electrical connection. The black wire is connected to the single male spade connector on the starter solenoid which, if looking at the front of the solenoid, is at about the 2-3 o'clock position (on the engine block side from the battery cable). Once this connector is found and cleaned, just push the black wire connector onto it and crank it up!
