Stus-List Universal Engine panel wiring- Problem Solved!

Why add a solenoid and complication?. The original design worked all these years. The harness quick connects are the problem. Bypass those and you will never miss them.

I traced the wire yesterday, and it does not look like there is a solenoid for the glow plugs. I will have to think about adding one (perhaps when I remove the connector this winter). Dave

Thanks for letting us know what you found. I'm still curious to know if you have a glo-plug solenoid. 

If you don't have, can't fine, can't wait for tefgel then silicone dielectric grease (spark plug boot grease) can be found at any auto parts store and is a good alternative.

I wanted to report back on the latest on my engine panel. I was able to get the connector in the engine compartment apart today. Two of the pins were particularly black and all looked corroded. I cleaned them all and put it back together and remarkably, the engine started with both buttons held down. So that high resistance junction seems to have been the source of the problem. It is such a rewarding feeling when all the work pays off and a problem is solved. Thanks for all the advice and suggestions! 

Now- what to do about the future- I am considering putting some electrically conductive grease on the contacts before reassembling the connector. I may still butt connect all the wires this winter, but the grease seems like a good option to retain good contact. Dave
