Hello - I am trying to replace a solenoid in my 2004 Sportsman 500. It has 4 posts like the old one I replaced.
I, of course, didn't take a picture of how it was wired before taking it apart.
There are 4 posts on the solenoid. I believe I have the two smaller posts on the left (in the pic) wired correctly, with the small white wire with the red stripe on top.
There are two other red wires (one to starter, one to winch I think).
One other red wire (not pictured) goes to battery +.
Then there's one grey wire (at the bottom of the pic).
Can someone tell me how this wiring should go?

Thanks!
Dewey

On the two small terminals - the wht/red goes to one and a brown to the other

On the two large terminals - the battery positive, winch wire and the grey wire go to one terminal and the starter motor wire goes to the other

I’m trying to hook up a solenoid on my 04.5 sportsman 500. I hooked up the brown wire to the small terminal on bottom, white/red on top, positive from battery on large top terminal, and the other wire on bottom. Now I’m not getting any power. Any ideas?

thanks in advance

The small red wire is the white/red wire that activates the solenoid when the starter switch is engaged. Chassis power is the gray wire that goes on the large stud along with the battery wire and brown is ground.
