AviStart 3000 Installation Guide

The starter wire provides 12V directly to the starter or to a relay controlling starter. In some vehicles, it is necessary to power a cold start circuit. A cold start circuit will test exactly like a starter circuit, but it does not control the starter. Instead, the cold start circuit is used to prime the fuel injection system for starting when the vehicle is cold.

How to find the starter wire with your multimeter:
1. Set to DCV or DC voltage (12V or 20V is fine).
2. Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis ground.
3. Probe the wire you suspect of being the starter wire. The steering column is an excellent place to find this wire. Remember you do not need to interrupt the starter at the same point you test it. Hiding your starter kill relay and connections is always recommended.
4. Turn the ignition key switch to the start position. Make sure the car is not in gear! If your meter reads (+)12V, go to the next step. If it doesn’t, probe another wire.
5. Cut the wire you suspect of being the starter wire.
6. Attempt to start the car. If the starter engages, reconnect it and go back to Step 3. If the starter does not turn over, you have the right wire.

The ignition wire is powered when the key is in the run or start position. This is because the ignition wire powers the ignition system (spark plugs, coil) as well as the fuel delivery system (fuel pump, fuel injection computer). Accessory wires lose power when the key is in the start position to make more current available to the starter motor.
