2 Wire Solenoid Wiring
I got a 24V solenoid that has 3 wires on it instead of 2 that I am normally used to. The colors on the wire are Black, Blue, and Brown. I thought Brown matched to Red and Blue matched to Black so I hooked up the solenoid with the Brown wire going to the V+ and the Blue wire going to OUT0 with the black wire not connected.
Makes the solenoid cheaper to manufacture. To wire the solenoid you run the positive cable from the battery to the large post on the solenoid, it should have a 5/8 nut on it. You then run a wire from your start switch or the start post on your ignition switch to the S post on the solenoid.
A wide variety of 2 wire pull solenoid options are available to you, such as control, shutoff, and needle. You can also choose from stainless steel, brass, and alloy. As well as from normal temperature, medium temperature, and high temperature. And whether 2 wire pull solenoid is water, gas, or oil.
I just finished up installing a wiring for my '03 Chevy K1500 and I have a question a out the solenoid. There are 2 control wires (brown/red & black/orange). Does it matter what wire goes to which control pole? And does it matter what pole of the solenoid I put the battery cable and what pole I put the battery output on? Attached a pic of the
Most vehicles use a starter-mounted solenoid that functions as a high power switch to connect the starter drive pinion gear with the flywheel to start the engine. Most on-starter solenoids are easy to wire as you mount the starter on the engine. Other solenoids--mostly on Fords--are remote mounted.
I replaced my solenoid going from a 3pin to a 4pin one, and I can't tell how to wire it. Any help would be appreciated.
