CP7674 DIGITAL MULTITESTER
INSTRUCTION MANUAL
SAFETY GUIDELINES
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.
SAFETY EQUIPMENT
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.
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) to have the
parking brake engaged when in the DRIVE position.
Refer to your vehicle service manual for more information.
Fireproof Container
HOT SURFACES
Fire Extinguisher
Rags and flammable liquids should be stored only in
fireproof, closed metal containers. A gasoline-soaked
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 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.
SETTING THE BRAKE
Make sure that your car is in Park or Neutral, and that
the parking brake is firmly set.
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.
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.

PRECAUTIONS AND PREPARATION FOR
MEASUREMENT:
1.Be sure that a fresh nine (9) volt battery is correctly installed in the
multitester.
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 COMmon jack on the
multitester. The RED test lead must be inserted in either the Volts
Ω(ohms) milliAmps jack, or the 10 Amps jack depending on the test
being performed. Incorrect placement of the RED test lead may
damage the multitester, the circuit under test, or both!
4.The 10 Amp range on the multitester is not fused. Exercise
extreme caution!
Input Impedance: 450K
5.Operate the multitester only in temperatures between 0°C and 50°C
(32°F - 122°F), and at 80% or less relative humidity.

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.
7.Do not store the multitester in direct sunlight, or in areas of high
temperature or high humidity.

FUSE REPLACEMENT:
All milliamp ranges of this miltitester are fuse protected. Should you exceed
2 amperes of current flow in any of these ranges, the fuse may open. To
maintain safe operation of the multitester, replace it only with a 2 Amp, 250
Volt, 5mm x 20mm fast-acting glass fuse. Replace the fuse as follows:
1.Turn the SELECTOR switch OFF.
Voltage Burden
250mV rms Max.

open fuse out of its holder.
b. Plug the BLACK test lead into the COMmon input jack on the
multitester.
6.Re-install the battery, and bottom case half.
c. Plug the RED test lead into the Volts Ω (ohms) milliAmps input jack on
the multitester.

b. Plug the BLACK test lead into the COMmon input jack on the
multitester.
d. Connect the test leads to the circuit under test, observing proper
polarity.
Use this test to check for open or shorted diodes. A good diode will show
a low reading with the test leads connected in one polarity, and a high reading
with the test leads connected in the other polarity. The low reading will be
typically some three-digit number on the display (for example: .673). The
actual number is not critical. The high reading should be infinity (1.).

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
