Reverse Backup Switch Resistance Help
Ok, now with the fuel sending work we are onto the reverse switch mounted on top of my T-176 tranny case. A lot of the times the reverse lights stay on all the time. Sometimes the lights are off when moving forward. I unscrewed the switch with a 15/16 socket. Bench tested it and got a closed circuit of 7 ohms. Screwed the switch back in, hooked up the DVM, and got in the range of 85-90 ohms (with the tranny in reverse, out of gear we infinite overload). Is this reasonable, right, wrong, or a switch bad? The red and white pig tail was not connected when we check this resistance. What do you think?
