Default Starter Solenoid Part Number

I read through some posts that recommended not replacing the factory starter as it was better than the aftermarket/remanufactured units. That the issue with the OEM starter is the solenoid. Unfortunately the solenoid is not available separately, but according to the posts a solenoid from a 94/95 Jeep Cherokee would interchange. Supposedly the wire connections are clocked differently or use a different attachment type, but it will work.

Unfortunately I have been unable to find a listing for the solenoid online or by talking with my local Carquest, Napa, etc. Does anyone know the correct part number for the solenoid so I could try and source one that way.

Thanks!

Get the ser# of the starter and go online and find some company's that sell rebuild parts.

I still have this one saved in my Ebay 'Watch List',because I had a sticking solenoid plunger a couple of months ago,and figured if it kept on giving me problems I would replace it......But,mine loosened up after tapping on it with a hammer & stick!lol

Here's the listing on Ebay:
Starter Solenoid Mazda MPV Chevrolet Suzuki Saab Subaru Chrysler | eBay

NOTE: That one shows fitment for 2003-2010 Chrysler PT Cruiser.....

But,this one specifically shows fitment for "2001-2002 PT CRUISER"..(Main difference is the connector socket):http://www.ebay.com/itm/STARTER-SOLE...ce0fe6&vxp=mtr

Thanks for the reply. I had found the 2nd Ebay listing while searching myself. I have contacted the seller to "verify" that it will work on my PT Cruiser since it has the double listing.

They state it is correct for the vehicle, so I will probably order one today.

Thanks!
