I haven't used one, but I think you clip one lead to the white-red wire
terminal on the solenoid, and one to an always-hot (brown) terminal on
the fuse block.  Ignition doesn't have to be on if you're just turning
over the car to adjust the valves, etc.  I suppose if the ignition were
on, the car ought to start.

Can someone verify this leap of logic from glancing at the wiring
