    Hi All,
    Just wanted to mention that I am extremely grateful to all the folks
    that replied when I asked about how to check the current draw of a pump
    using a DVOM. I have had many replies direct to my e-mail address and
    several on the newsgroup. I really appreciate the time and effort.

    For what its worth you should all know that the pump I wanted to test is
    in a Mercedes that I am refurbishing after many years of service. The
    techs felt that the pump was drawing too much current (due to age and
    increasing resistance) which was tripping the air conditioning off. A
    replacement would have cost hundreds of dollars. With the amperage
    reading I was able to obtain I now know that the pump is still
    performing to spec and we are continuing to search for the glitch
    elsewhere. That money would have been completely wasted.

    Now some folks might wonder why I am making such a fuss. Well, the
    answer is simple. I have also joined several Mercedes discussion forums
    while this project is underway and have asked the same (and other)
    questions on the forums. I rarely received any answers and even then it
    would take days.

    In contrast I have asked a few questions on this NG and have always been
    answered very quickly and always by several people.

    Thank you all very much.
