gmc van cutaway - electrical- starter

I am going to attempt a repair over the telephone with a fellow skoolie tomorrow. I need information that only a skoolie can provide. This is a 1999 gmc savannah (sp) in general, if there is an general, in general where would I be looking for starter relays that are part of the interlocking system? I have a broken starter wire, we are going to find the wire, or bypass and put in a new wire and go around the bad wire. I am not familiar with this van cutaway. Going in blind so to speak. I am assuming the neutral safety switch on the van is a place I can pickup wiring for the starter if I need to go that far back. Comments?

Gas or diesel william?


No clues on the covers of the electrical panels which is the start relay?


Not understanding what you are re-feeding or attempting to from the neutral safety switch. That is small wiring and 12v but low amperage,
If you find the broken wire, why not just splice it?


Pics would help if possible.

guessing gasoline

the starter wire, brown, about 10ga from the looks of it, appears to have been twisted in two. There is a wire about four inches long on the starter motor, but the owner cant seem to find the other end. So the plan is to look around via face time, and if we cant find the other end of that wire, we are going to go around the bad/ broken wire with a new one.

from the few posted pictures, I am guessing this is a gasoline engine. I have not found a wiring diagram for the stock savana yet.

Does that short wire connect to the solenoid or come off the battery cable post?
