    Sometimes my vehicle and others devlop electrical faults, normally cured by
    changing fuse / component, however i have heard that sometimes you need to
    'trace' faults with a multmeter.

    This is okay but how does one go about tracing the fault?? i know that a
    circuit has to be closed to work but how can you trace the fault to a single
    broken wire or connector?? in a loom it is hards to check visually for
    corrsion as many parts of loom are hidden what setting do i have to use on
    mutimeter?? do i need a more able tool sometimes?? the car in question is
    not fuel injected

    At the moment the electrics all work fine, however i wish to be prepared for
    the future!!

    Any help is appricated

    thanks dave

    Buy a Hanes guide. It can be tedious tracing automotive wiring with a meter.
