87 yj frying Solenoids?!

87 yj 4.2 nuttered

Couldn't figure out why my jeep wasn't starting so I installed a new solenoid and It fired right up.

Next day in am before work, dead. Nothing. no crank. no aux, no electric fan. Only thing that comes on is the head lights. makes no sense.

Does anyone have a pic of the solenoid wires and where they go? maybe I hooked them up wrong and fried new one solenoid? is there a simple way to check if its dead?

thx in advance

There are two solenoids for 87. One for auto trans and one for standard. I used a normal old ford solenoid when I started having trouble thoigh.

Also, make sure you have a good contact between the solenoid and the body. The bolts holding the solenoid to the firewall are the ground connections

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.
