– Park machine safely.
 – Allow engine to cool.
 – Disconnect wiring harness from solenoid.
 – Use ohmmeter to check resistance across solenoid terminals.
a. Hold-in coil terminals A to C.
b. Pull-in coil terminals A to B.
c. Combined coils B to C.
 – Check for grounds or shorts between solenoid terminals (A, B, and C) and solenoid housing. There must be no continuity between any terminal and the solenoid housing.
 – If resistance does not meet specification, replace solenoid.
