That sounds like it's not grounded properly, so it's jumping to ground itself through the case to the closest grounded spot.
I recommend checking your ground cable for continuity, then check that wherever you have it grounded is a clean solid ground.
I'd also check all the cables and connections to make sure they're in good condition and not corroded or rusted. If all the wiring checks out, and the ground checks out, I'd check the solenoid with a meter # PT89ZR to make sure it's working properly.
