    Here's exactly how I had to do it on my M12000. The 12k has the 6 wire controller that has switch grounds as well as the in/out positives. If your's is like a 8274 with only 3 wires just eliminate the negative connections in my picture. The integrated solenoid is porbably different than anything I've messed with. I say just get a test light and start farting around till you figure out what color wires do what. Of course, 12voltguy will have the answers, he did when I did mine.
