Lightbulb Solenoid wires falling off? Fix here (BKO)

yeah... 1 of the 2 wires from my solenoid decided to rip itself off from my solenoid, so, instead of replacing a perfect noid, i decided to simply replace the wires... heres a quick tutorial, of course, doin this will void the warranty and i will not be held responsible for anything that im listing here

* First step, take the noid apart (i have it posted on a previous tutorial), then take the cap off the noid exposing the board and the wires
(oh yeah, dont forget to clamp down the noid to make the job easier)




* The board is held by 2 pins soldered to the board on the opposite side of the wires. Carefully heat up the 2 pins as you try to remove the board




* Here's the actuall messed up wire, it broke from inside the wire, not conducting the power signal anymore




* Next, remove the noid from the clamp
Flip the board upside dow exposing the soldered aread
Clamp down the daughter board instead
Unsolder the old wires from the board one a time




* The underside of the board should be free of any wires now




* Now, begin to solder the new wire onto it
After soldering each, run the wire through the holes




* Take the board off, put the noid back onto the clamp
Flip the board over so that the wires are point up and the the soldered joints are on the bottom (i have it upside down in the following picture)




* Now solder the board back onto the pins of the noid
Gently heat the holes on the board as you lower the board onto the noid, do each hole a little bit at a time so that they can go in evently




* Replace the cover again and you should have new functioning wires




Of course, try this at your own risk
this shouldnt be attempted unless you are comfortable with a soldering iron

awesome man, great walkthrough. I might even go so far as to say it is retard-proof, as long as you know how a soldering iron works.

but how did you rip out your noid wires? I hear of ppl messing up their wires all the time, how do you guys do it? I've never had a problem. Well at any rate sh*** happens so great tutorial.

**** happens

well.. my thought is that, since the wires coming out of the noid is subject to a lot of abuse also from non q/d'ed noids and how they bend when people take apart and put back together their markers... the wires will eventually fell... i just happen to open it up and changing stuff around a lot to try new harness features

chances most of the noids wiring out there will probably last forever without breaking
