Hello. My name is Tan.
The reds and the orange go to the large terminal A of the start solenoid along with battery cable.
The purple/red goes on the left side terminal D of the start solenoid. http://i.imgur.com/SbZmo0h.png
Does this make sense?
That is set up wrong but it will work. Long as the alternator voltage gets to the battery.
Yes please send pics I don't know of any ignition solenoid.
The purple needs to be a ground wire. The orange needs to be connected to the red wire on the solenoid.
This solenoid is the primary start solenoid. It has nothing to do with ignition.
Post the other pic when you get a chance.
Here is the diagram.
