Mine gave me no warning at all. Plus I was going 60-65 on the highway when it let go. It sounded like a gun shot under my Jeep.

I have that too. I was just saying to look for 12v coming out, it's quicker and easier.

I have about $5000 in Snap On tools lol.

It may not be 12 volts. A lot of the circuitry in a vehicle uses much less than 12 volts. The light will just tell you if there is current. It won't tell you the amount of current nor the amount of voltage. The DMM will.

i was about to tear into my transfer case swap, got as far as removing the rear driveshaft and t-case skid plate, went to do the front driveshaft and saw a couple drops of tranny fluid on the cardboard, looked up and it was leaking right where it mates to the engine block. the front of the tranny pan was covered too. just had the ****er worked on. they changed the fluid and adjusted the bands. put it all back on and hopefully going to take it back to them tomorrow morning without having to pay to get it fixed again since its probably under warranty. hasnt been more than a month. guess ill have to hold off on the swap for a little while longer.

on a good note, i made a switch panel out of some sheet metal. turned out purdy damn good.

Got a pic of the switch panel. Thinking of removing my VC, (I guess it's called), and putting switches there....

I found out that my old ZJ was lowered and had the short arms at 6.5 swapped out for longarms at 4.5. That was more that I could stand.

actually, i put it on the center console right above the rear cup holder. since my arm is always resting right there, its real easy to flip the switches. ill post pics tomorrow. if you want to remove the vc, ive heard its a perfect fit for a cb.

I've been debating there also. Seems better and more "out of sight".

The ignition switch is going to be 12 volts though. I'm only trying to check that both the accessory and run position get 12 volts from the remote start. Because I'm not really able to tell with the instructions which wires need to have 12v battery power in order to power up those 2 wires and pulse the start wire in order to start the vehicle.

I will probably need to use the ohm meter function to be 100% sure the relays are opening and then the volt meter to test for voltage out, saying test light wasn't exactly "this is what I'm doing" it was just referring to what I was testing I suppose.
