Electrical 91 Mercury Sable

I am having a problem with the electrical system I believe. One of the leads going to the solenoid switch was broken so I reconnected it figuring that was it.Then the selenoid switch was making a "grinding" noise so we replaced it. My son took the wires apart ( it is his car ) but he believes that they are correct the way we replaced them. Also there is a smell like rotten eggs which seems to come from the solenoid switch when we try to start it. Any thoughts ??

If you're talking about the starter relay, verify the wiring is correct by going to figure 28 on this page for the wiring diagram: http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBr...3d800d3088.jsp

All the wires go on the battery side of the solenoid except the cable to the starter and a small wire going to the small post on the side. Bets are the rotten egg smell is your battery and needs replaced. Check the charging system for over charge after changing it.
