TEST OR INSPECTION
3. STARTER CRANKS SLOWLY (UNDER 200 RPM) (Cont).
Step 15. Dial 89 into TEST SELECT.
Measure voltage drop across each cable connected between batteries,
starter motor ground terminal and battery negative post, and battery
positive post and starter solenoid BAT terminal.
Do this by connecting test probe cable W2 clip test leads across ca-
ble to be measured.
Press and release TEST button.
Crank engine then return ignition key switch to off position.
Voltage drop on VTM display should be less than 0.2 volt.

Reinstall cable and repeat above test. If VTM still displays
over 0.2 volt, replace cable (page 5-158).
b. If voltage drop is less than 0.2 volt, check for loose or corro-
ded connection between starter solenoid MTR terminal and starter
motor positive terminal. Remove connector between these two
terminals and check for dirt or corrosion.
Dial 89 into TEST SELECT.
Measure voltage drop across each cable connected between starter
relay end terminals and starter solenoid BAT and S terminals.
Do this by connecting test probe cable W2 clip test leads across
cable to be measured.
