Yellow wire connected to the started solenoid

What's its purpose and is it a problem that my car will start and run with it disconnected?
Thanks guys.

Re: Yellow wire connected to the started solenoid

The yellow wire bypasses the ballast resistor while the starter is engaged. It was meant to provide a hotter spark during the start cycle. If your setup works well without it you have no need for it.
