How to Use a Multimeter - Measuring Resistance and Verifying Continuity


Last week, we showed you how to use a multimeter to measure voltage—or, more accurately, to verify that voltage is present—which is the most common reason you’d grab the meter and probe around in your car’s wiring. Now, we’ll tackle the second-most common use of a multimeter in a car—measuring resistance and verifying continuity.

Nicely done, Rob!

Coincidentally, I wrote an article that considers Resistance, Impedance and Ohms, wrapped around the rating of auto radio speakers. It is entitled, “Why Resistance is Futile, and Impedance is Important” and I think it augments your article well…you’ll find it under Matt’s Madness which can be found at the top of the landing page at RediRad dot com. Thanks!
