During the check of pins on connector with a multi-meter, one of the pins that goes through the relay to provide ground signal, I am getting 8MOhm (8 megohm). I should not be getting anything on that pin as the relay should be de-energized. How should I interpret this reading? I was under the assumption since the readout in megohms should it be ignored as a possible issue?
“...thru the relay... ,...”de-energized” suggest you believe the NO (normally open) contact should present an open circuit. If you are not reading across the relay’s NO contact you might be reading a path you don’t expect.
