I know this may sound dumb to some ppl,but is the solenoid grounded? I have seen two different types of remote solenoids. Some which are grounded through the mounting holes and the other that is wired to ground. Well after all its just a thought. And you should only have to use the "s" post ,this is how i have mine wired.

I installed a solenoid kit that I got from MAD Electrical
I'm attaching a drawing of how I hooked mine up. I pretty much followed there instructions and mine works great.

Hope this helps
