Re: Testing Electronics

Hello!

The display does light up but it doesn't seem to be receiving any information from the indicator. I can clearly see what the display offers but the information is not correct. Furthermore, the wind direction needle stays in one direction and doesn't move. I believe that the speed is also inaccurate. I have tried to recalibrate and other things like this but to no avail.

What I want to try to figure out is if there is a way to test the wiring from the masthead cable junction box to the indicator at the top of the mast. Is there a way to test the electric circuit and the signal wire separately to see if they are functioning properly?

Thanks!
