[QUOTE=TxShadow49;1230392]Some may have seen my wiring thread and realized that I have been having a little trouble. I think I have found the part of main reason. (Outside of misunderstanding some directions). The 3 wires that come from the dimmer switch are W/R, B, and GR. I now know that Bl is the high beam, W/R is the low and GRN is the ground. The circuit that powers the Hi Beam Indicator is not working. The High beam circuit has continuity. The low beam wire has intermittent continuity. I put a multimeter on it and it jumps up and down. I don't understand that. Also, I want to make sure I am reading the meter correctly. If i put red lead to pwr and black lead to wire end should the needle peg out to the zero side of the meter if you have continuity. I'm not sure how to figure out whether its the dimmer switch that's bad, or if its something else. I have a wiring diagram, but I'm not sure if I can read it right. And please no ball-busting here. I know I could have taken this to the stealer, but I'm trying to learn this stuff myself.
If you have the red lead to power, and the black lead to the end of what wire? if its the blue wire and you checking while pluged into the switch, that would be a voltage drop test, with good wiring it will show 0 , but if you have an open circuit after the part of the harness your testing it will also show 0.
so start over.
the hot wire coming into your dimmer is what color, blue and white? do you have power there? if so
on low - do you have power at the switch connector at the white wire? no? bad dimmer or wiring between connector and dimmer.
on high - do you have power at the switch connector at the blue wire? no?
bad dimmer or wiring between connector and dimmer.
do this with the connector plugged in, and use a small paper clip to back probe it. check the connector pin fit, and look for corrosion, broken pin.
