Default Anyone??

Know someone who can diagnose a solenoid wiring problem relatively fast? I dropped boat off last week with mechanic and haven't heard from him!!! I know its gotta be simple but looking at those wiring diagrams and all the wires just messes my head up!! I replaced up trim solenoid and it works, where as it didn't before, now however, when I try and trim down one of my ground wires gets real hot and smokes!!

thanks for any help/direction-

That usually means you have a bad connection. Make sure it is tight and the wire isnt compromised, it can break inside the insulation.

When I trim down I hear a buzzing then a few seconds later the wire starts smoking. Are you saying the actual ground wire might be broken? I have two ground wires and the bottom one is the problem??

Yes they are saying the wire is either broken in the insulation or a bad connector.

Where are you located, if close I could come over and help you solve the problem ed

Wow thanks Ed. I live way over in Fairhope. If I can't figure it out this weekend I may drag it to work with me Monday in pensacola and take you up on it.

Wirelessly posted

When wire or connector is corroded it will build resistance which produces heat and that nice burnt smell. lol
