But now truck won't start cause the re is no power to fuel solenoid
Expert:  73bbchevy replied 10 months ago.
ok, so that is a reverse light switch, you will have power coming into the switch on the motor side and when the trans is shifted to reverse the power will go to the other wire to the lights, did you verify if power was on the forward wire?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No I was thinking one was ground
Expert:  73bbchevy replied 10 months ago.
no that is the power signal that is why the light came on when you applied voltage

But I grounded one side and put power to the other
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Now like I said the truck will not start
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I've checked all fuses in fuse box
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Unless I put power to the fuel solenoid then it fires right up and runs until I stop energizing
Expert:  73bbchevy replied 10 months ago.
its possible that a fuse was blown by grounding the wire, i will opt out and see if another expert can chime in because i am unfamiliar with the fuel solenoid you are speaking of.
