How to Test a Three-Prong Flasher Relay

  1. Identify the terminals.
  2. Clip the test light lead between the “P” terminal and the negative terminal of the battery.
  3. Connect the “B” terminal to the positive terminal of the battery using the test wire with equal-length stripped ends, with one clip on each end.

How do you tell if a relay is bad with a multimeter?

Use a digital multimeter (DMM) to test the resistance between each pole of the relay and the corresponding NC and NO contacts for that pole. All NC contacts should read 0 ohms to the corresponding pole. All NO contacts should read infinite resistance to the corresponding pole. Energize the relay.

How do you test a SPST relay?

To check the relay coil’s resistance, take the multimeter you have and place it in the ohmmeter (Ω) setting and place the probe leads of the multimeter on the 2 terminals of the relay’s coil. It doesn’t matter which probe is placed on which terminals. Resistance isn’t polarized.

How do you test a horn relay with a multimeter?

Test the relay switch – Remove the relay and set your digital multimeter to the Ohms setting. Touch one meter lead to the switch relay socket and the other to the battery negative post. Have another person push the horn button to test the reading.

Why my horn is not working?

But an inoperative car horn can also be caused by a bad horn switch in your steering wheel, a broken “clock spring” under the steering wheel, a bum horn relay, a broken wire, or a corroded ground. If the fuse is good, jump power directly to the car horn with a homemade fused jumper (photo).

Can you drive a car without a horn?

Technically yes, as it’s a safety hazard to not have a working horn, but of course there’s a very slim chance that police passing you on the road could have reason to suspect that you’re driving without a functional horn.
