* : This is a test wire used to connect two points of a circuit. It can be used to bypass an open in a circuit.

* Voltmeter: This is a voltage measurement tools. Note, connect the black lead to known good ground and red lead to the positive side of the circuit.

* : This is a circuit’s resistance measurement tools. Note that low or no resistance in a circuit means good continuity.
