A volt ohm meter set to ohms could answer quickly the question of resistance in any piece of wire. It should be noted that as wire ages with use it will increase its ...

A better solution is to fix these two problems and correct a few other common faults. Use a voltmeter or a test light to confirm if the switch is receiving and outputing 12 volt power. Then go to the bulb and see if it is receiving power. Even with power, the bulb would not work if the ground side is poor, or the bulb is open circuit. Also, look for ...
