Hi all 
 Thanks for the responses, in reply to the question of replacing the resistor,
yes, twice. What I have been able to determine since my last post is that the
by-pass wire that I installed is allowing the resistance in the solenoid coil
to pull down the voltage to less than 1.5 volts (I still have a closed circut
through the primary terminal and the low voltage side of the resistor). Not
enough to power the coil. I am now looking at installing a diode in the
by-pass wire, electricity flows only one way thru a diode. If that dosn't do
the trick then its out with the old and in with the new, providing there's
enough clearance with the firewall.
