Question about 1996 Acura Integra GS-R
Hi, Thanks for responding. You asked if I was any good with a Multi Meter cause you thought it might be the switch. Good Call! I have a multi meter but I can't say I'm a veteran user. I can follow instructions. What you got?
Ok first thing I need you to do is pop the switch out of the dash. Then take a paper clip and slide it into the the back of the connector to check voltage from the power wire which would be the Green Wire.
You will get voltage from that. That is the power wire to the switch
Now do the same and back-probe the red/green wire. While pressing the switch to open measure the amount of voltage you are getting. It should be around 12v.
All this should check out and be ok.
Now back-probe the green/yellow wire. Press close on the switch and measure your voltage. Repeat this several times. If you arnt getting around 12v then the switch is your problem.
If you arnt getting around 12v back-probe the green wire agen and also the green/yellow wire. Switch you your multimeter to read ohams. Measure the resistance of the switch when it is open. It should be infianet resistance. Now press close and the switch should read .1-.3 ohams.
If the switch is good let me know.
I think the problem is in the switch. Built up resistance is the logical call and it is easy to check. If the switch is ok let me know.
