Warner OD Wiring Question

Recommended Posts

My '41 Continental has the Warner OD unit. I have the wiring diagram from Warner that shows a 4 pin relay (mine is 5 pin) and a 2 pin solenoid (mine is 3 pins). Question is: what are the extra pins on the relay and solenoid supposed to connect to?:confused:

Thanks, in advance.

Nomal relay has two pins that operate / energizes the coil in the relay when battery voltage is applied. Pin 3 would be the common pin for the circuit. The next two pins, one might be for a direct current path when the relay is not energized and the other pin for the current path when the relay is energized.

Just a thought.

This OD wiring diagram shows an early and late version. The only difference appears to be the 'solenoid actuating coil' and solenoid holding coil' between pin #4 and ground for the early version vs a straight pin #4 to ground for the late version. How would I know if my solenoid requires the 'actuating and holding' coils?

My car is an early model, but the solenoid was replaced, so it's not original.

Any clues appreciated.

How would I know if my solenoid requires the 'actuating and holding' coils since both coils appear to be three pins?
