Using Meters to Check for Problems
Using Meters to Check for ProblemsThe voltmeter and the ohmmeter can be used to isolate various problems. You should be able to read the schematic and make the proper voltage or resistance measurements. An incorrect reading will indicate the possibility of a problem. Troubleshooting charts will aid in isolating the problem to a given system. Once you have arrived at the proper system that may be causing the symptoms, you will then need to use the ohmmeter with the power off to isolate a section of the system. Once you have zeroed in on the problem, you can locate it by knowing what the proper reading should be. Deviation from a published reading by over 10 percent is usually indicative of a malfunction, and in most cases, the component part must be replaced to ensure proper operati…
