Should Electric Trailer Brakes Have Continuity Between The Two Wires?  


When I test the two wires going to the brakes with an ohm meter it shows continuity like a short. Is. This right or should it show an open circuit?


Expert Reply:

You will have continuity between both wire of the brake assembly.

You can test the resistance with the Ohmmeter function on your Multimeter # PT89ZR. I have linked an article on testing brake magnets below for you to determine exactly what your ohm range should be based on your trailer brakes.
