There are 2 wires coming off the fuel and Nitrous soleniod
just want to make sure that one of them is NOT a specific pos. and the other a specific ground.
I am almost positive that it doesnt matter just want to make sure

I'm having this same problem with my fuel solenoid. Please keep me updated and let me know if the new solenoid fixes the problem or if it was a wiring problem.

I would have to say its for sure a wiring prob. put in a new soleniod
and still nitrous side works fuel side does not.


one wire runs to the progressive controller the other wire runs to the relay
like I said the blue soleniod works the red one doesn't WTF please help soon
BTW the wires under the electrical tape are soldered so the connection is good

Problem Fixed, (you see my blue wires are piggybacking the red ones)
the Nitrous solenoid is pulling all the amperage and keeping the fuel side from opening,

CURE

1. run heavier wire from supply to piggyback or
2. extend blue wires directly to supply

I'll try that, thanks!

I would recommend 10 gauge wire from your progressive controller to the solenoid wires, to eliminate any voltage / amperage problems
and make sure that your soleniod wires are at least 18 inches long without piggybacking them like you seen in the photo above

SLowgoat in the pic the reason the fuel one would not work is a voltage drop is introduced. The amg draw of the nitrous noid is pulling so hard throu that smaller wire that a voltage drop is occuring at that juction. The fuel just was not getting the volts in needed.
Glad to read you got it going. Hope you have fun spraying.

I talked to one of your guys this afternoon and got things straightened out I am not remembering his name right this second, I had him look at the photo and he got me straightened out.
