on top of the engine in the middle front, slightly to the left of center. The wire color is red with a light green trace. There is only 1 connector on the cut off solenoid, 2 red and light green wires come together on the harness side, there is no way to hook it up backwards, because there is only 1 terminal. I think you could be looking at another component. Yes the engine could jump time, but I think the injectors would still blow fuel into the cyl's.
