Question about Measuring Tools & Sensors
Hi I am trying to test the resistance on my vct solenoid, and needed a ohm tester. I have a Sanwa 460-ED but have no clue how to use it, no instructions. I am trying to find out what exactly it tests, and if it is a dohm or what it is. Can i use it to test the resistance? and if so how do i do that?
I am not familiar with that particular meter but.... to measure resistance you will need an ohms scale.
the leads should be plugged in to the + and - holes. Normally the red lead always goes in the + lead.
If there is a switch to change scales, do the following. Touch the ends of the test lead together, (after you have connected the leads to the meter. Rotate the switch thru all of its positions. if you see the
meter swing over towards zero, that is the ohms scale position. There should be a knob to zero the meter when the leads are touching.
Come back with any questions and I'll respond Loringh
