Those should both be hot (black) wires to two separate circuits. Electricity flows into the breaker from the bar that they snap onto and the grounds (white and bare) all go to one grounding bar on the side of the box. If you don't know what you're doing inside the box, please put the cover back on and call someone who does know.

SOUNDS LIKE A RELAY.THE EASIEST WAY TO CHECK IS TO POP THE HOOD,LOCATE THE RELAYS,AND IF THERE NOT MARKED,CHECK TO MAKE SURE THERE THE SAME AMPERAGE[MARKED THE SAME ON TOP], AND JUST START SWITCHING THEM AROUND.MAKE SURE YOUR KEY IS OFF BETWEEN SWITCHES.

How to shut off power to your house?

If you have circuit breakers there is a double breaker at the top of the row of breakers marked Main. Flip that one and it shuts the house off. Older houses with fuses have a pull out fuse with two long round fuses in a holder. Pull the holder out and everything is dead. There should be two of these holders in the fuse box. One is the main and the other will be for a stove. The main will be marked Main.

Wire a starter.....There are 3 terminals on the solenoid.... 2 Big and 1 little....2 of them are marked on the solenoid (S) and (M) the other may be marked (B)...The (B) is connected to the battery(it's a big terminal) The (S) is a small terminal that is connected to the switch(it will have a small wire)(probably purple) and the (M) terminal will be connected to the starter itself with a short braided wire....


Where is the starter relay on a 2000 Ford Escort?

There isn't one. The heavy positive cable goes directly to the starter. The solenoid is what transfers the heavy amperage to the starter. The wire from the ignition goes to the connector marked s.
