The wire that will melt is the one that is between the point of the short and the source of the power. I would take the wire off of the amp meter and then with battery connected touch the wire from the solenoid to a ground. You should get a spark. Then try it to the post on the ammeter. If the ammeter is shorted out you will get the same spark.

a good visual check might detect a problem but noting like a cheap ohm meter or test light. Might be a good time to get one and learn how to use it. I got a real cheap one from Harbour Freight.
