actually most the time you can test a diode in place. using the diode setting on the dvm you should read partial continuity one way , for example a popular diode often used reads .740 with the black lead on the side of the diode with the line marked on it. if the diode reads a reading like .740, or .580 or something like that one way, and open or a reading like 1.xxx the other way , the diode is probly good. if it reads open both ways it is bad. if it has another device connected in parallel it may read some funky number both ways and then you should isolate it to be sure, but heat can damage a semiconductor if in excess so I never isolate unless I need to.
