Does anyone have any instructions on bench testing an electro-mechanical
regulator ("control unit")?
I got some wierd results when testing on the car, so I've taken it out and
plan to take it into the lab at work tomorrow.
The wierd results were that when performing the standard test (disconnect
the A and A1 wires from the control unit, short them together, then measure
the voltage on the D terminal) -- the voltage initially fluctuated to
somewhere around 14-16 volts, then dropped to around 4. After that, the
voltage would fluctuate, but never get anywhere near 12V.
