Using a ford solenoid is only rated for intermittent duty.
There is however a ford looking style solenoid, but with a metal jaket or housing, that signifies that it is for continuous duty. If you are using it to control all the power for your ride, or to run a circuit full time, get the continuous duty style, they are a few bucks more, but they are built for the specific duty of being left turned on .
