Re: generate sensor signal

The test was a diagnostic procedure. I've seen it listed in a couple of different places, never tried it, though. Anything I tried would just be for diagnostic purposes. I've heard mechanics say, unplugging sensors for diagnostic purposes was poor diagnostics. It just seemed to me, if you could imit...

I figured I could run a wire from positive battery posts with a resister in series, to cut back the voltage. I don't know how to pick the correct resister? Depen...
