Customer q:

I just bought a JEGS shift solonoid.

Isn't it supposed to to retract when power is applied and spring back when power is cut?

I've bench tested it and it will not pull back by itself, i have to manually push it in before it will hold


engine = 350

make = Chevy

model = Camaro

name = Stan Robinson

year = 1978


Thank you for giving Jegs the opportunity to assist you with your technical question.

It will not retract on its own, but will hold the rear position when power is applied. Once power is applied and the solenoid is cocked it will function as intended.
