Turn battery-starter function selector to "STARTER SYSTEM TEST" (0-500 amp scale).
Connect red positive ammeter lead to positive battery terminal and the black negative ammeter lead to negative battery terminal.
Connect red positive voltmeter lead to positive battery terminal and the black negative voltmeter lead to the negative battery terminal.
Connect a remote starter jumper according to manufacturer's instructions. Do not crank engine excessively during testing.
Disconnect coil wire from distributor cap center tower and secure to good ground.
Crank engine with remote starter switch and observe exact voltmeter reading, then stop cranking engine.
Turn tester control knob clockwise until voltmeter reads exactly the same as when engine was being cranked. Ammeter should read 120-160 amps
Circuit Resistance Test
On 1986-87 reduction gear starters, perform circuit resistance test, refer to "Chrysler Reduction Gear Starter" section.
Insulated Circuit Test
Turn voltmeter selector knob to 4 volt position.
Disconnect ignition coil secondary cable.
Connect voltmeter positive lead to battery positive post and voltmeter negative lead to solenoid connector that connects to starter field coils. It
Connect remote control starter switch to battery solenoid terminal of starter relay.
Crank engine with remote control starter switch while observing voltmeter reading. If voltmeter reading exceeds .3 volt, there is high resistance in
a. Remove voltmeter lead from solenoid connector and connect to following points, repeating test at each connection. Starter terminal of
solenoid, battery terminal of solenoid, battery cable terminal at solenoid, starter relay and cable clamp at battery.
b. A small change will occur each time a normal portion of circuit is removed from test. A definite change in voltmeter reading indicates that
last part eliminated in test is at fault.
Starter Ground Test
Connect voltmeter positive lead to starter through bolt and negative voltmeter lead to battery negative post.
Crank engine with remote control starter switch and observe voltmeter reading.
If voltmeter reading exceeds .2 volt, make following tests to isolate point of excessive voltage loss, repeating test at each connection; starter drive
A small change will occur each time a normal portion of circuit is removed from test. A definite change in voltmeter reading indicates last part
Starter Resistance Test
Disconnect positive battery cable and connect a 0-300 scale ammeter between disconnected lead and battery terminal post.
Connect a voltmeter, graduated in tenths, between positive post on battery and starter relay terminal on starter solenoid.
Crank engine while observing reading on voltmeter and ammeter. A voltage reading exceeding .3 volt indicates high resistance caused by loose
Reconnect positive battery lead to battery.
