This is the wire that runs to the starter solenoid. It connects to the  
terminal that is hot ONLY when the starter is cranking. This sends 
a signal to the brain that you're trying to start the engine, and also 
powers the cold start valve at the same time. The cold start valve 
will only run if it has that power AND if the temp switch is closed, 
giving it a ground.
