Your Digital Multitester is designed for both home and automotive use. The
following Safety Guidelines are provided when it is used for engine or vehicle
testing. To prevent accidents that could result in serious injury and/or damage to
your vehicle or test equipment, carefully follow these safety rules and test procedures.
SPECIFICATIONS:
SAFETY EQUIPMENT
Over range indication – Left side of display shows either “1” or “-1” when range in a function
is exceeded.
Diode Check
Operating temperature – 0°C - 35°C (32°F - 95°F), 0-80% R.H.; 35°C - 50°C (95°F
- 122°F), 0-70% R.H.
Transistor Check (hFE)
Fire Extinguisher
Never work on your car without having a suitable
fire extinguisher handy. A 5-lb or larger CO2 or dry
chemical unit specified for gasoline/chemical/electrical fires is recommended.
Fireproof Container
Rags and flammable liquids should be stored only
in fireproof, closed metal containers. A gasolinesoaked rag should be allowed to dry thoroughly
outdoors before being discarded.
Safety Goggles
We recommend wearing safety goggles when working on your car, to protect your eyes from battery
acid, gasoline, and dust and dirt flying off moving
engine parts.
NOTE: Never look directly into the carburetor
throat while the engine is cranking or running, as
sudden backfire can cause burns.
LOOSE CLOTHING AND LONG HAIR
(MOVING PARTS)
Be very careful not to get your hands, hair or
clothes near any moving parts such as fan blades,
belts and pulleys or throttle and transmission linkages. Never wear neckties or loose clothing when
working on your car.
JEWELRY
Never wear wrist watches, rings or other jewelry
when working on your car. You’ll avoid the possibility of catching them on moving parts or causing
an electrical short circuit which could shock or burn
you.
VENTILATION
The carbon monoxide in exhaust gas is highly
toxic. To avoid asphyxiation, always operate vehicle in a well-ventilated area. If vehicle is in an
enclosed area, exhaust should be routed directly to
the outside via leakproof exhaust hose.
to have the parking brake engaged when in the
DRIVE position. Refer to your vehicle service
manual for more information.
HOT SURFACES
Avoid contact with hot surfaces such as exhaust
manifolds and pipes, mufflers (catalytic converters), radiator and hoses. Never remove the radiator cap while the engine is hot, as escaping coolant
under pressure may seriously burn you.
SMOKING AND OPEN FLAMES
Never smoke while working on your car. Gasoline
vapor is highly flammable, and the gas formed in a
charging battery is explosive.
BATTERY
Do not lay tools or equipment on the battery.
Accidentally grounding the “HOT” battery terminal
can shock or burn you and damage wiring, the
battery or your tools and testers. Be careful of
contact with battery acid. It can burn holes in your
clothing and burn your skin or eyes.
When operating any test instrument from an auxiliary battery, connect a jumper wire between the
negative terminal of the auxiliary battery and ground
on the vehicle under test. When working in a
garage or other enclosed area, auxiliary battery
should be located at least 18 inches above the floor
to minimize the possibility of igniting gasoline vapors
HIGH VOLTAGE
High voltage – 30,000 to 50,000 volts – is present
in the ignition coil, distributor cap, ignition wires
and spark plugs. When handling ignition wires
while the engine is running, use insulated pliers to
avoid a shock. While not lethal, a shock may cause
you to jerk involuntarily and hurt yourself.
JACK
The jack supplied with the vehicle should be used
only for changing wheels. Never crawl under car or
run engine while vehicle is on a jack.
SETTING THE BRAKE
Make sure that your car is in Park or Neutral,
and that the parking brake is firmly set.
NOTE: Some vehicles have an automatic release
on the parking brake when the gear shift lever is
removed from the PARK position. This feature
must be disabled when it is necessary (for testing)

2. Compare the position of the selector switch with the anticipated test result. In the case
of voltage or current measurement, always select a range which is high enough to
handle the worst case result! Voltage or current may be higher than you expect.
3. The BLACK test lead is always inserted in the COM (common) jack on the multitester.
The RED test lead must be inserted in either the V mA (Volt-ohm-milliAmp) jack or
the 10ADC (Amperes DC) jack, depending on the test being performed. Incorrect
placement of the RED test lead may damage the multitester, the circuit under
test, or both!

h. A good diode will show a low reading with the test leads connected one way, and
infinity (1) with the test leads connected the other way. The low reading will typically
be some three-digit number on the display. The actual number is not critical.

higher range within the resistance function.
a. Set the SELECTOR switch to the
Measurement rate – 2.5 measurements per second, nominal
Power – Nine (9) volt alkaline or carbon zinc battery, NEDA 1604
6. TRANSISTOR CHECK
a. Set the SELECTOR switch to the hFE position.
b. Determine whether the transistor is NPN or PNP type and locate the Emitter, Base,
and Collector leads. Insert the leads into the proper holes of the hFE socket located
on the front of the multitester.
c. The display will show an appropriate value of the transistor hFE measured under
the following condition: base current = 10mA, collector-emitter voltage = 2.8V.
FUSE REPLACEMENT:
All milliampere (mA) ranges of this multitester are fuse protected. Should the current exceed
200 mA in any of these ranges, the fuse may open. To maintain safe operation of the
multitester, replace it only with a 200 mA, 250 V, 5mm x 20mm fast-acting glass fuse. Replace
the fuse as follows:
5. Operate the multitester only in temperatures between 0°C and 50°C (32°F - 122°F),
and at 80% or less relative humidity (RH).
1. Turn the SELECTOR switch OFF.
6. Turn the SELECTOR switch to the OFF position when testing is completed. If the
multitester will not be used for an extended period of time, remove the internal nine (9)
volt battery to avoid damage from leakage.
3. Remove the battery.
7. Do not store the multitester in direct sunlight, or in areas of high temperature or high
humidity.
2. Remove the bottom case half.
4. Using a small blade screwdriver or other suitable tool, gently pry the open fuse out of
its holder.
5. Install a new fuse.
6. Reinstall the battery, and bottom case half.
