Can I test my 99 honda solenoid while it attached to my car? Is there a trick to removing Honda solenoids?


Yes you can test it, if it clicks and starter doesn't engage then the solenoid is defective, if you have power to the solenoid and the ignition trigger wire lights up the 12 volt test light when the key is held to the start position you have either a defective solenoid or a defective battery OR battery cable connection,.
