Does a solenoid need a ground? Expert Reply: A solenoid that has 3 terminals total such as # TR118665 grounds through the mounting hardware so it must be attached to a clean and corrosion free bare metal surface (if not otherwise internally grounded). A 4 terminal solenoid such as # PK5230701 requires a separate ground wire.
Is the starter solenoid grounded? Your starter RELAY gets it’s ground from the steel inner fender. Run an external ground to the mounting tab if want to make sure it will always have a good ground.
Does it matter how you wire a solenoid? If they are connected to a terminal, you are good to go. The small gage wires on the small terminal are the same as the small gage wires on the larger terminal. It does not matter because it isn’t specified in the instruction manual.
Does polarity matter on a solenoid? The simple answer is that polarity does not matter on solenoid valve coils. Typically, the lead wires will be the same color so you can connect the positive terminal to either of the two wires.
