    I have a question for you. I had a cable pump that's junk. I have another one that is the solenoid version. I have the wiring harnesses but am not sure what goes where. I can eliminate the lighting harness because with the old system, the lights are already hooked up to a switch on the dash. This leaves me with the harness for the controller that goes to the coils. Now, I know the 3 black wires with spade ends go to one of each of the coils. And the 3 colored wires go the coils also. But which color goes to which coil? And does it matter top or bottom of the coil? Also, the brown and black wire under the hood go to a solonoid. Does it matter what post they're connected to? With a simple Google search I can't seem to find instructions on colors to coil.
