I'm trying to trace a flaw on my truck. A forum suggested that I "connect my multimeter in series with the battery." I have NO idea what this means. Obviously, the positive lead goes on the positive terminal, but where would the other lead go?
"In this case, the meter reads 0.97, meaning this resistor has a value of 0.97kÎ©, or about 1kÎ© or 1000 Î© (remember you are in the 20kÎ© or 20,000 Ohm mode so you need to move the decimal three places to the right or 9,900 Ohms"
0.97kÎ© = 9,900 Ohms ?!?!
Good catch! I fixed a few issues with this part. Now reads correctly.
Uhh... Sorry, but (-) isn't ground, normally. Is this a typo or are you talking in conventional plumber terms?
It may be a vernacular thing. It can get confusing when you have multiple references but for most of the DC circuits I teach with, '-' and 'gnd' and 'ground' get used interchangeably.
