Question about Greenlee Dm-60 Digital Multimeter

1 Answer

Dm-60 Has been setting on the counter for a couple of years. Measuring dcv, on a 9v battery, readout is unstable and lower than it should be. Measuring acv, reading is about half what it should be. There is a very slight scorched smell but circuit board and components look pristine.

Hello,
If batteries are fresh (low batteries give false readings on the meter because the meter uses the batteries to benchmark what it is testing), then you might want to consider taking the meter back even if it has been a couple of years. If that is not possible for you then try calling Greenlee themselves and seeing if there is a warranty on the meter-some meters have 7 year warranties.
Hope this helps, James

    I replaced the battery again and let the components set open for a couple of days to dry out any moisture I might have missed.
    Meter is assembled and working fine.

Over chargeing up to 16.8 volts, two bench tests of alternator says it is ok


How are you measuring the 16.8 volts? Is this what your cars readout or gauge reads? Maybe gauge bad. Or are you measuring with a volt meter at battery with engine on? Then regulator on alternator has to be bad. After you drive car is battery overheated? If you look inside battery is it almost boiling? Bad alternator regardless of tests.

00-30-001 2000 ACCENT DMTL DIAGNOSIS: DTC CODES P1401, P1402 AND P1403

p1402 - dm-tl air pump motor is shorted or disconnected.

2000 model year accent is equipped with a new enhanced evaporative emission system. this new system is capable of measuring leaks as small as 0.020" diameter. the new system pressurizesthe evaporative emission system with a diagnostic module for tank leakage (dm-tl), while the previous model's system appliedengine vacuum through the purge valve to detect system leaks.

service information
vehicles that have the check engine light illuminated and have dtc p1401, p1402 and p1403 stored in the ecm should have their electrical systems diagnosed related to the appropriate dtc. these codes are not related in any way to an evaporative emission system leak. the conditions that set the diagnostic codes areas follows:
p1401 - dm-tl air pump motor current draw is higher or lower than expected (normal = 17-36 ma).
p1402 - dm-tl air pump motor is shorted or disconnected.
p1403 - dm-tl changeover valve is shorted or disconnected

perform the suggested repair
1. inspect for water in the dmtl by removing the 90° air inlet elbow and looking into the air chamber. if water or corrosion is present, replace the dm-tl p/n 31440-25500; air filterp/n 31453-25500; and pipe assembly p/n 31454-25500if corrosion is in the pipe. see detailed instructions on page3 for air filter replacement.
2. inspect for underbody coating sprayed into connector m52 at dm-tl. if underbody coating is present on the male or female connector, spray with electrical contact cleaner to remove the undercoating.

air filter (dm-tl) replacement instructions
  1. disconnect the 90° elbow from the top of the dmtl and insert a clean rag into either the elbow or thedmtl inlet connector.
  2. disconnect the dmtl electrical connector.
    1. disconnect the 2 hoses at the front of the canister (caution: silicone hoses tear/puncture easily).
    2. remove canister assembly and dm-tl as a unit (3 mounting nuts).
    3. disconnect the 2 hoses from the metal transfer pipes.
    4. remove the canister, air filter, and metal tube assembly from the canister protector by removing the 3 mounting nuts.
    5. disconnect the hose at the air filter.
    6. remove the air filter mounting nut and remove the air filter.
    7. install a new air filter.
    8. reassemble in reverse order.
