Multi meter help please

Post by bohdan » Mon Oct 09, 2017 3:03 pm



Hello Fellow Goldwingers. Well I am at trying to figure out how to read resistance on the pulse generators. Pulled the plug above the cooling fan. It's s four prong plug. I have to read resistance across the terminals and I must be doing something wrong. I get Zilch. Tried both sides of the plug and still nothing. I need to be getting between 400/500 ohms. Never did resistance before. It seems like there is some dielectric grease there. It's a 93 and probably first time it's been unplugged. Any tips on what I am doing wrong? Mighty obliged.

This is what the service manual has to say:

You might also want to tell us what kind of multimeter you are using as it may be that you are not using it correctly? Tell us the model and make and we can suggest how to use it.
