Hey, Jazzman, I want to wish you the best of holidays.
I learned a lot from your brief synopsis of the electrical systems of automobiles, and the
various measurements of electricity. I was able to comprehend most of it, and do the
testing you suggested.
Voltage was easy to measure and so were amps. I experimented on a six and 12 voltage battery charger I
have. Multimeter accurately read volts, and also read amps. I will continue to experiment with other systems on the
Fiero as I work on other problems.
I also went to an auto parts store and measured ohlms on a simple "on/off" switch. Switch open (on) shows .5
(resistance reduced). And with switch closed (off) shows 1.00. Also experimented with a 110 volt AC switch and it worked
also with switch open and closed.

SO, thanks for taking the time to show me what to do, and what the tests mean. I would guess that there
were other forum members monitoring the thread, and you probably taught them some things also. David Stremer
