Anyone tested the fan switch per Clymer's instructions?
I replaced the fan switch on my '01 today, but decided I should probably test the old one just in case I was getting paranoid. Tried boiling it per the Clymer's set-up, but all of the multimeter leads I have are plastic with just a couple of centimeters of metal at the end. I didn't rest the leads on the edge of the pan in the process, ergo I didn't watch to see if the resistance lowered to .5 ohms as the water began to boil (tho' the resistance did lower, so something's happening in there).
Has anybody tried this, just for the heckuva it? And is there some trick to making sure the leads stay in place for the requisite (per Clymer's) 3 minutes?
