Found this on TheSamba
Great idea to eliminate a very common failure culprit easily and cheaply.
Will bookmark this one
Great find Phil....
WOW dont think I have ever had a post honored with a sticky before
You do know that you can just test the Hall sensor with a multimeter?
Do you have step by step instructions on how to test with a multi meter. I am afraid dont know how to use one and seems there are a lot of different ones available which also confuses me I do however have a test light which has been handy.
Agree....a plug and play option is easier to use for those that do not know how to,effectively, use a multimeter.....hence the Sticky.
Do not use a test light on electronics.
Iv only used the test light to locate active power wires.
Havnt been able to find the correct plug for the Hall Sender Tester on line yet, any info regarding correct part number would be helpfull
Yes I've also looked without success, might have to make one ................or 2 ...............3..............4...............
I found them in UK from Brickwerks. Will try and find a used one.
Don't you have any old looms from wrecks?
Part number could be 443 906 236
The terminals are hard to find a part number.
These were fitted to most VWs and Audis from the mid 80's to the mid 90's including T4s.
I bet that you can still buy them from an Audi or VW dealer or Bosch or BMW, Porsche etc.
Thanks Phil, the Brockwerks one already has the wires attached
Thanks to Syncro for making the tester for me and Cbus for supplying the plug. Great collaboration guys. I will keep it in my van so its on hand if or when I or someone else needs it.
Nice work @syncro & @cbus
Love the ever helpful KC community & spirit!
So it just needs a 9V battery to use?
Yes, it works if the Dizzy is in the van or not
and see the related items for the pins (3 needed)
Resistors. think these are the right ones!
12 volt LED
If you are looking for a cheap DIY this on ebay comes with a display so that you can test and calibrate it as you like.
