I used an automotive 12vdc battery, a 12vdc power supply and 9vdc battery. Swapping leads on all. I tested the solenoid for the correct resistance before and after, it reads 13.5 ohms, which is in spec per the service manual. The only thing I can think of is a solenoid made for PWM power requires a square wave power source. Is 12vdc the correct voltage, maybe 5?
