These cables connect the battery to your car`s starting system. First, the red one connects the starter solenoid to its positive terminal. This wire is usually live, so be careful when handling it. Then, a black or greenish-yellow cable connects the starter motor to the battery`s negative terminal.
A typical starter solenoid has three connections at its terminals: One terminal is the “B” or battery terminal, which connects the Solenoid through the positive battery cable. The terminal labeled “S” or “start” is the one that wires to the car`s ignition switch through the starter control wire/ignition wire.
In most cases, it doesn`t matter which wire goes where. However, there are a few circumstances when the order of the wires does matter. For example, if the solenoid is controlling a switch, it`s important to make sure that the load wire is connected to the correct terminal. Otherwise, the circuit may not work properly.
The “B” or “battery” terminal: The terminal that connects the solenoid directly to the positive battery cable. The “S” or “start” terminal: The terminal that receives power from the ignition switch. The “M” or “motor” terminal: The terminal that attaches to the cable that connects to the starter motor.
Faulty Wiring

Faulty connections in the control or starter circuit might cause a high electrical current to flow through the solenoid. This could cause excessive heat that would end up welding critical parts together and leaving you with a bad starter solenoid.

A starter solenoid usually has three or four terminals — one or two small connectors and two larger ones. The small terminals are for the ignition coil and starter control wire that connects to the ignition or starter switch. One large terminal is for the battery cable from the positive battery terminal.
Most high-performance starters use two wires: the larger main wire, and the smaller activation wire. The activation wire is attached to the switch that engages the starter — it`s the signal side of the ignition process.
ST (starter).

This terminal connects to the starter solenoid. It may have a brown or yellow wire.

As a rule of thumb, a starter-mounted solenoid has three terminals. As illustrated in the wiring diagram, the red wire connects to the large battery terminal on the starter solenoid, the purple wire connects to the `S` terminal on the solenoid, and the yellow wire connects to the `R` terminal on the solenoid.
Wrap your right hand around the coil so your four fingers point in the direction of conventional current. Stick your thumb up as if you were signaling “OK”. That is the North magnetic pole of the solenoid. If you prefer electron flow, then they flow from negative to positive, and you use the Left Hand Rule.
Checking at the solenoid and other parts

Connect the voltmeter across the solenoid terminals, the negative lead on the feed (battery) side, the positive on the starter side.

Solenoid Valve Wiring

Take one wire from each solenoid, twist together and connect to the common (usually white) wire of your multi-conductor irrigation cable. Connect each of the other individual wires to a different colored wire. Record zones against wire color for later reference.

Solenoids, like most valves, are directional. If you install it backward, it isn`t going to work correctly. This is why. Solenoids must be sized properly.
A starter solenoid becomes bad gradually before it finally stops functioning. You know your starter solenoid has minor problems when you hear a continuous clicking sound after the engine has started. Another way to know if your ATV starter solenoid is losing its value is intermittent starting.
Expert Reply: A solenoid that has 3 terminals total such as # TR118665 grounds through the mounting hardware so it must be attached to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface (if not otherwise internally grounded). A 4 terminal solenoid such as # PK5230701 requires a separate ground wire.
Should A Solenoid Have Continuity? A solenoid is expected to have continuity between the two large terminals when current is supplied to it. This means that the circuit is complete and the solenoid coils are working how they should.
Dim or Flickering Lights– Another common sign you have bad ground is dim or flickering lights. Generally, intermittently dim headlights are caused by either a fault with the bulb itself or a broken circuit.
The starter won`t work, or work well without a good ground. Bolting the starter to the block or bellhousing “should” create a ground that is adequate for the job but I have seen starters that wouldn`t work and the only problem was corrosion built up between the starter and engine.

The protective ground is green or green with yellow stripe. The neutral is white, the hot (live or active) single phase wires are black , and red in the case of a second active. Three-phase lines are red, black, and blue.

The black wire is the “hot” wire, it carries the electricity from the breaker panel into the switch or light source. The white wire is the “neutral” wire, it takes any unused electricity and current and sends it back to the breaker panel.
If the current in the coil facing you is flowing in clockwise direction then its the south pole. If the current is flowing in anti-clockwise direction, then its the north pole. This can be figured out using Right hand thumb rule.
Indirect solenoid valves are only used for media flow in one direction. Indirect-operated solenoid valves are used in applications with a sufficient pressure differential and a high desired flow rate.
The direction of the flow of the magnetic field in a solenoid is from the north pole to the south pole.

Need the wire diagram to rewire my Ariens lawnmover to bypass the safety switch. It is Ariens GT-19 model # 931026 Serial # 001463.
Can you help? It is an old Ariens mower but still runs good but now I need to bypass the safety switch in order to run it any longer. The local Ariens dealer said I need to go through the internet and get the wire diagram as they cannot give it to me directly. They told me I needed the wire diagram and the part involved in bypassing the safety switch. Hope this is all the information you need to help me.

Thank you. Roger Fielitz

ANSWER : Here is owner manual: the switch is behind the ignition, sometimes at the N position of gearshift, just look for a switch with one wire coming in & one going out (usually the same color); disconnect the two wires & jumper them together to bypass the switch. Looks like yours has one under the seat.

I have a Kohler Condidant 5 Generator that will run as long as you hold the start button in. It dies when you let off. I have a harness for the remote switch but no switch – It also will start the generator when you cross the red and black wire and run as long as you hold them together. There are 3 wires to the main switch and 5 to the remote switch. Does the starter stay engaged the whole time you hold the start switch or does the computer release the starter once it is running? The Generator is producing electricity because I tested it while holding the start button. Some where is a wire that shold tell it to keep running. I have read online many descriptions of the same problem, most are told the board is bad so they replace it and still have the problem. Have not found a solution. Talked to a marine machanic today and he said he fixed his friends generator doing the same thing by running a bypass wire but he couldnt remember exactly what he did it was a long time ago. Can anyone help me. Thank you
ANSWER : The problem is either the ballast resistor or the starter bypass relay. The bypass relay should be part of the starter solenoid. I’m afraid I can’t tell you exactly where the ballast resistor is located. It should be a physically fairly large resistor made of ceramic. It should be retangular roughly 1.5″-3″ long and 3/8″-1/2″ accross with a wire on each end. It could also be a coil of wire mounted on a phenolic board.

Trying to install a new fluro light, pull out old light to find 3 reds and 3 blacks 1 copper earth. What do I do to connect it up the right way??? When I pulled the old Fluro light out the 3 Reds were joined together with a connector ,two blacks were joined to one end of light wire, the other to the other end of the light wire,earth wire to the light case,the third black wire was connected to the wire from the ballast? Does this all make sense
ANSWER : No, this does not make sense but I have seen strange wiring before. There is power going from the light someplace else. Just connect it back up exactly as the old light was connected. It worked before so it will work again. If it works it is wired correctly. Without being there to check which wire was the hot wire and which was neutral it is impossible for me to say what is what. Make sure you connect the ground wire to the light chassis.

Replacing solenoid relay
ANSWER : Hello the red wire from battery goes to solenoid with the nut on it. And the other side with the nut goes to the starter motor. Sometimes there will be a B for + and a M for starter motor on the solenoid. On the + side of solenoid front of the + cable from battery a blue/black wire will go there. and the other side of solenoid will be a blue/white wire. I hope this helps
