Hi

Any time you have a control problem, it can be one of a number of issues:

1) There is no power to the control switch, that wire or fuse has an issue.
2) The switch is defective or the connections to the switch are bad
3) The wire from the switch to the solenoid is bad / broken
4) The connection from the wire to the solenoid assembly is bad
5) The solenoid assembly is shot
6) The connection for the return on the solenoid assembly is bad
7) The wire from the return to ground is broke / bad
8) The ground connection on the wire is bad

Unless *all* of those things are ok, the solenoid will not work. Current needs to flow through the entire path in order for it to operate.

Bob,
I have covered 1,3,4,5,6,7,8. Like I said I have already replaced the solenoid and in doing so checked all the connections, power and grounds. The switch is on order so lets see how that goes. At this point the converter is working fine. When powered up produces 13.3v at the converter and the battery terminals when I can get it to latch. When not latched the voltage at the battery terminals are however they are charged.

I looked at the back of the switch and it has a 5 wire connector. Brown(one side of solenoid) , Red (12v), White (other side of solenoid), Green (?) , and Black (return/ground)

Not sure what the green does? Perhaps chassis ground?

Thanks, Rich

Hi

Given that they don't stick to color codes for very long, you will have to trace out the wires on the switch. It's a real good bet that green is not chassis ground in this case..... The owners manual is generally a good starting point for working out what's what.
