Ok with ignition key open, when I push the pedal, I have power at one and have a weak voltage around 11.7 at black wire, which is wrong
Nissan Mechanic: Clifton B., ASE Master Auto Tech replied 28 days ago

the black wire should be ground so it most be shorted .check them again but this time do not hit the button

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
If its shorted, can I ground it?
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
Ok I checked both wires when car is off, nothing on black wire and the other is negarive
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
If I dont hit the bottom and brake , I won't have anything on the solenoid
Customer reply replied 28 days ago
Ok let's check it again, cuz I'm confused,
Right now I'm talking about SOLENOID 2 pins, one is black, one s white,
White is positive with 12 colts, black has 11.4 , you said black is ground, then I need to ground the black one, is that correct?
