A starter solenoid is an automotive relay being placed between a vehicle’s battery and its starter motor. When i bypass the starter fuse/relay the car turns over like a charm no problem whatsoever, the starter does not hesitate. A solenoid responds to a small electric current from the ignition system then switches a large electric current from the battery to the starter motor.
A starter solenoid is an important part of a vehicle. When functioning properly, the starter solenoid carries the flow of power from the battery to the starter after the key in the ignition has been turned over. If a clicking sound is heard when the starting key is flipped, check the voltage of the motor terminals.
The other post, the i terminal, allows a temporary full 12 volt shot to the coil while the starter in being energized.
