    Nice video man. Can you do a beginner's video on STFT and LTFT?


    I like to use a horn for checking circuits alone especially starters , hook it to the signal wire and turn the key


    Terrible test… If you only consider this test, you’ll replace starters until you are out of business. A starter being fed by a 22awg wire would pass this test all day long, but that doesn’t mean the engine will crank over or that the starter is bad.

    Isn't another possibility that the engine block to chassis ground strap could be busted? You might have 12V at the back of the starter but if you put the negative lead of your multimeter in the wrong spot you might miss a ground side issue. By wrong spot I mean you should place the negative multimeter lead on the engine block when checking the starter not the negative battery terminal. I think putting it on the negative battery terminal and not immediately downstream of the load bypasses any problems on the ground side and could give a false result. Edit: I think you need to do both to check both the positive and negative sides of the starter.

    If you are alone and don't have a power probe you can use a test light placing it so you can see it when you turn the key on
