Testing a resistor ?
Tell me if I'm correct , I have a resistor on a piece of test equipment that has a silver band , orange band , blue band , green band . The silver means that it can vary + or - 10 % , the orange has a value of 3 , the blue has a value of 6 and the green has a value of 100,000 . So I take 36 x 100,000 and it is good for 3,600,000 ohms + or - 10% , if I put my test leads on both sides of it and my meter reads 0 the resistor is bad ? Does it make any difference when I test it if it's hooked up as long as no power is being supplied to it ? It has two other resistors on it that should be 100 ohms + or - 5% ( Gold ,brown,black,brown ) and they seem to check out at 102 ohms . Be patient with me I'm an electrical dummy .
68 work in progress , but I can drive it now - O5D build - 712 trim - 02 color
Think it was a 396 , 4 spd. - now in primer , 350 , 4 spd. , lots of new body and mech. parts
