Depends on the style of solenoid you have , the single wire provides a ground siginal to the solenoid to energize it from the T handle assembly .

If the New style Western solenoid is present with two small terminals , the single wire from the T handle goes to one of the small terminals , the other small terminal needs a jumper wire to the battery side of the solenoid's two larger terminals .

Many different solenoids are out there , some internally grounded , some internally powered , be sure of which one you have before you proceed.

Hope this helps

TOM

were did you jump power to make the solenoid click? if you put power to the small stud and it clicks, you have the wrong solenoid. you need a ground activated unit.
