western unimount solenoid help

im having trouble connection the wiring on my solenoid.

the larger terminals are fine, but on the smaller terminals im confused.
one wire is orange, the other is black and red.
my solenoid instruction call for me to connect a red jumper wire from one of these small terminals to the larger red positive terminal on the solenoid.

do i put these orange/red and black wires on one small terminal and put the red jumper on the other small terminal?

both wires on the small terminal go into the cab.

a friend wired it for me, but he ran out of ideas.

the plow was working when it was first hooked up, then it just humned. The solenoid seemed stuck he said and eventually killed the battery.
