Can someone with better electronics kung fu please help? I have a particular transistor in my bike. It appears the switch functionality works fine, however the output is not what I expected: 1: show a open circuit (this occurs correctly). 2: show a given resistor output (instead I see a closed circuit). It was suggested to me that the transitor only shows the resistor output for a very brief moment and then closes the circuit, and that this is too fast to measure, thus I am seeing the closed circuit when I attempt to measure in the switched condition. Alternatively, I think perhaps the resistor has blown - but since its a sealed unit I cannot easily check. So... any help welcomed!
