Re: [DML] Testing Lambda thermal switch



Guys,

Let me help you out with testing of this switch.
It is a switch, so you will only see two states - shorted (about 0 ohms) or 
open (infinite). There should be no resistance in this circuit... well, 
maybe 1 or 2 ohms for the wiring. If you see more then it's time to clean 
the connections.
According to the shop manual (page D:04:10 and D:04:11) the switch will 
activate when the temperature is BELOW 15 degrees C or 59 degrees F. This 
means that below this temperature it should be shorted (single ohms, beep on 
continuity test) and above this temperature it should read open circuit.

I hope this helps
