Tried to crank truck over and was making a click sound my dad told me it was the solenoid. Bought a napa solenoid, but it wasnt a direct replacement it came with the I stud original only came with M B and S, anyways hooked up new solenoid and got no power for nothing so I figured I had it hooked up backwards, so I switched places with the M and B and got power and truck started up problem and question is that the starter wasnt disengaging when truck was running so turned off ignition and unhooked the S terminal and battery to turn it off. Did that a few more times and new solenoid is done for and will not even kick truck over just the same clicking sound just like before. So can anyone explain why that was happening my truck has four wires that hook up all together 1. The m and b terminal wires, 2. Altenator wire 3. The starter wire.4. Headlight and other electrical wire. Please some help I tried to put as much detail into this. ( On stock solenoid all of the wires listed 2-4 hooked up to b terminal and thats what I hooked up to napa solenoid but difference was the starter wouldnt disengage.)
have the same problem?
