Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is*****'m a Certified Auto Technician with 29+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

Are you referring to the larger harness connection next to the brake master cylinder just to the passenger side of the MC?

As for the solenoid you are referring to, is this the solenoid that is bolted to the passenger side battery tray?

Keep me posted...

Thank you,
