Big red cable to the top big stud/post on the starter solenoid, the small wire connector goes onto the small post on the solenoid. Make sure the neg. battery cable is disconnected when doing this.

I connected all the wire but it still won't start it make a cranky noise. So when I turned the key and leave it on, I use a screwdriver to the conduction the car start but only with the screwdriver

Then you would have to test to see if there is power on the small wire on the starter solenoid when someone is turning the key to the start position, power should be on that wire at this point. You could have a bad ignition switch.
