“Wires, connectors and switches are designed to conduct current with a minimum loss of voltage. A voltage drop of more than one volt indicates a problem. To test a voltage drop, connect the voltmeter leads to connectors at either end of circuit’s suspected problem area. The positive lead should be connected to the connector closest to the power source. The voltmeter will show the voltage drop between these two points.”
