    Here is a link on how to perform voltage drop testing on circuits.



    You use this method to test the quality of your connections instead of breaking the circuit open and cleaning the connections hoping that will solve the problem.

    Why? The systems all operate using the same principals.

    because I'm a visual learner. And some of my friends are not mechanically inclined so it helps to be able to show them what a lead is and where to put it versus trying to tell them .

    When you figure out how to do it, could you make a video and post it on YouTube for everyone else to see? Thanks!

    There are plenty of videos on YT already that cover this problem and more. No need to reinvent the wheel. In order to troubleshoot electrical you should have a very basic understanding of DC circuits.

    Tell us what you don't understand and the members here will help guide you in what you are doing and why.
