That's why it's best to bypass the solenoids as Rex suggested, taking their failure and function out of the equation. You will never loose 12 VDC again especially when you least expect it which is usually during the night when it is pouring rain outside.

Mine has been bypassed for the past 6 years. Prior to that my 12 VDC was iffy until the While-Rogers Solenoid finally failed completely. No more problems.

Just my opinion.

Thanks Jeff. Interesting they have limited year models showing. I bought a CD with tons of information on my 2008 Endeavor. At that time there was access to a complete listing of mfgr part numbers. Fortunately I downloaded all of them. The diagrams are very close withing a couple of year models so if you need any more diagrams give me a shout. I can now post more pdf's because I became an IRV supporter.

If you bypassed that relay why would you replace the salesman switch?
Doesn't that switch control the relay?

Maybe I don't understand that circuit.

Please explain.

I replaced the cutoff switch and wired around the solenoid and havn't had a problem since.

No, you understand the circuit perfectly. The Battery Cut-off switch controls the solenoid. If you bypass the solenoid, then the switch is non-functional.

However, if the switch fell apart, the poster may have wanted to fill up the hole with something that looks good. A new switch would do that and if he or another owner ever wants to return the circuit to original, they can do that very easily.

Just my opinion.
