Lotus Elan

+2 solenoid to coil

PostPost by: LaikaTheDog » Mon Apr 11, 2016 7:03 pm

Elan +2 130 5
I have two wires going to the coil
A white
A white and yellow

The white comes from the tachograph I think... according to the book.

The white and yellow comes from the solenoid.

I have there questions

1) the white going to the coil : positive or negative ?
2) the white and yellow to the coil: positive or negative ?
3) the white and yellow at the solenoid end... which terminal ?
I have the two post terminals. One for the positive feed from the battery. The other for the starter feed.

In the middle I have two spade connectors. Looking at the bulkhead I have one on the right (white and red) and an unused terminal on the left middle and one unused terminal on the positive post...
