So i need answers to these questions. What i want is answers with no explanations or theory of why it works. Those theories are often opinions, often not well expressed, and are confusing to those who do not understand.

What i do want is to post a simple, correct procedure, what wires to hook up where, and what to do, to test the solenoid.
