ASE Question Of the Month 
Sponsored By
Federated Auto Parts
Which is correct?

You’re correct if you answered C!

Technician A is correct. A fuel injector is a solenoid that depends on a magnetic field to open the pintle. A shift solenoid is similar in design and can be tested the same as the injector. Technician B is also correct. If the ECU driver does not complete the circuit cleanly, the magnetic field strength will be affected and could cause the solenoid to open late or not at all.
