I got a 79 F150 pickup. I had to replace the solenoid on the fender.
When I took off the two small wires, I didnt label them. Now i am not
sure which goes to the front and which to the rear. One is red, the
other brown. I took a guess, and the truck starts, but does it
matter? (these are the thin wires, not the battery cables).
most ford selenoids have just one wire.. the positive goes to the one
wire push-on post... and the ground is from the fender well of the
vehicle.. so it probably does not matter in your case as you have a
positive and negative wire going to the coil in the selenoid.....
one way to test it is to take both the wires off.. and then put a
meter on it to test continuity form one to ground and then the
other..you probably not gonna get any continuity on either as its
probably just a direct wired coil which is seperated from the body of
