A couple of things you need to make sure of:

(New solenoid?)

The positive battery cable goes to the center stud on the solenoid.

The purple wire goes to the "S" terminal on the solenoid - closest to the engine block.

The yellow wire runs from the other solenoid terminal (closest to the pass fender) to the "+" side of the coil, along with the resistor wire which comes from the fuse block near the master cyl to the "+" side of the coil.
