What does that solenoid do. Is it's location labeled?

This is photo after board is in and reconnected. The solenoid I replaced is for Aux Start and may not have been defective. The other 2 solenoids in previous photo are Chassis Battery Disconnect ( which is probably the culprit ) and the Coach Batteries Disconnect.

Yes, you need to concentrate on the chassis start solenoid. If you can carefully jump the 2 big posts, that will take it out of the circuit. If it still don't crank, the problem is somewhere else.


One other test would be to activate the solenoid by putting 12 volts to the small post. ( I can't tell, but I think the yellow wire. Trace the black wire and see if it goes to ground ) That will jump out the remote switch circuit, that activates it.

Could also be a bad cable, Check the negative cable from the battery to the chassis ground. Had a friend with this exact issue. Turned out to be the negative cable. Next time it wont start use a jumper cable jump from the negative cable to the chassis.

On second thought the battery cable is cheap. I would just replace both from the battery, they go bad mostly from internal corrosion and you can not see it.

Jumping around the ground cable is a great troubleshooting tool.

Changing parts, because a friend had a problem like this one, is not.

One step at a time.

Your opinion, Mine is cables on a 97 chassis are due for replacement.

Ok I think I found the problem. I could have saved some money if I had known there was no back on the other solenoids in the BCC box. This is a photo of the Main Battery Disconnect Solenoid. I think it has seen better days!

Thanks for all the tips because I have been known to overlook the obvious. By slowing down and typing the problem for this forum has been a big help as I finally started seeing the way it all goes together. Now I have to find another part and I probably have some good spares (about $300 worth) that may come in handy later. Thanks again to all and God bless!

Steve
