You need to apply power to the post on the starter relay that causes it to make contact and feed the starter solenoid. All of the usual other stuff has to be done as well, such as ignition on, automatic car must be in park, standard shift car must have clutch pushed in.

Please be aware that this carries a significant element of risk. Stuff under hoods spins around at high speed, opens, closes, gets really hot, and so on. Everybody knows a nine-fingered mechanic...
