    Got confused with the solenoid, have one that is stuck open, change to a new one and it doesn't seem to work with switch, although when I take a wrench and go to the battery side and jump to switch it works, what is the deal where am I lost,

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but when you move the controller it grounds the switch and makes it click over to the other side, I can't get the light wire to light up when the switch is grounded,

    So I'm a little lost any help would be greatly appreciated, thanx alot

    Yes they work on a ground system, where did you get the new one?

    sounds to me like the ground is no good on the solinoid, or the solinoid is no good all togther. when you it the controler, you should hear the solinoid click.
