You've most likely already have purchased the solenoid so this post is for informational purposes only.

Those solenoids are a high failure item that will most likely fail again. My recommendation is to bypass the solenoid permanently UNLESS you really do use that Battery Disconnect aka Salesman Switch. I would guess that most people do not including myself.

My solenoid has been bypassed for over 9 years now and I haven't missed it for one second.

BTW, they usually fail at the most inconvenient time which is the middle of the night and pouring rain outside.

new batteries

I had this happen to me. Check the batt. control panel, should be in engine compartment, square box.
Inside there are two 30 amp, breakers. part of the wire connection post, small button in center of each one.
Try to reset, see if that helps
