Video Transcript for Performance Tool Wiring - Tools for Wiring - PTW1714 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the performance tool 3 piece electrician tool set. This is going to offer a great assortment for the garage, home, workshop use or on the job site. It's going to come with a digital multi meter that's going to measure AC and DC voltage. It's going to test DC current, as well as resistance. Features a diode test and it's going to feature a digital display, as well as data storage. This unit is going to feature a nice strong a durable casing to keep it protected. It's also got a kickstand here on the back that props the unit up for hands-free operation or freeing up your hands to do something else. Again, we have the LCD screen.

Right here is going to be a hold button. Then, we're going to have our range switch. Nice, clicking design that firmly stops in each location. You can see that large display. It's very easy to read and it's got the off position there.

We're going to have the HFE socket. Right here we're going to have 3 connecting jacks for the test leads. The unit's going to run off of a 9 volt battery. It does come with a 9 volt battery. The battery area is directly back here. You'd remove this screw on the bottom.

Remove the protective casing and then slide that bottom portion off. Then you can change the battery as needed. It is nice that it comes with that case. That's going to do a great job of keeping the unit protected, in case you accidentally drop it or bump it up against something. It's going to come with your test leads. Test leads are included. These are going to measure around 40 inches from end to end.

Then, they're going to have the protective covers over the tips there. We're going to have a pair of 7 inch diagonal wire-cutting pliers. They got the nice short jaws on there for easy cutting in tight areas. These are drop forged and induction, hardened for durability and they got the nice easy grip design on it, as well. These right here, these are going to be the 7 inch wire strippers for 10 to 20 gauge wires. It's got the nice little locking tab on there, so when they're not being used, close them. Push in that and then it keeps the unit compressed. It's also going to cut and thread popular bolt sizes. You can use these to loop wires and bend holes. It's got the serrated nose design right there. That's going to do it for today's look at the performance tool 3 piece electrician tool set.

  • How to Determine Which Wire Carries Constant Power for GPS Installation
    I wish I could tell you right off-hand which wire has constant power so you can connect your GPS to it but the best way for you to determine which wire carries that function is to use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 or a multimeter like part # PTW1714 which can show you which wire has continuous power. Even though there are standard wire colors out there sometimes those colors aren't used so it is best to test.

  • Troubleshooting Running Lights Not Working on Trailer Towed with a 2014 Ford F-150
    The easiest way to check and see if something is not working on your 2014 Ford F-150 connector is to use a circuit tester like part # PTW2991 or a multimeter like part # PTW1714 and test the pin for the running lights (see attached pictures). If you are getting power then the issue is on your trailer side but if you don't get power then you either have a bad fuse/relay or the OEM wiring is damaged. When I checked the online version of the owner's manual for a 2014 F-150 the only fuses I...

  • Is a Brake Controller Required for Towing a Camper Trailer
    Not necessarily. It all depends on how big of a camper you are wanting to tow and sometimes what you are towing it with. The typical rule of thumb that vehicle manufacturers go by is if you are towing it with a smaller vehicle a brake controller is required for anything over 1,000 lbs but for bigger trucks that is sometimes moved to 2,000 lbs. Local and State laws sometimes affect this as well. In any case, if your camper trailer is over that 1,000 lb threshold it is a good idea to use...

  • Troubleshooting T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness 4-Way Connector on a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan
    Have you tried testing the 4-Way connector of the (discontinued) T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness 118765 on your 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan? If you use a circuit tester # 40376 or a multimeter # PTW1714 on the T-One 4-Way you can determine if the issue is on your vehicle side or trailer side. If on the vehicle side try testing the wiring on the vehicle side of the ModuLite. If power is getting to the ModuLite but not coming out then the ModuLite is bad and you need to replace the entire wiring...

  • Troubleshooting Weak Braking with the Manual Override on the Reese/Tow Ready Pilot Brake Controller
    Were you driving with your trailer when you applied the brakes with the Pilot 2-6 Brake Electronic Brake Controller # 80550? According to the instructions you want to warm the trailer brakes before setting the power setting as warm brakes are more responsive. You can warm the trailer brakes by driving 45 mph for a short distance and then use the manual override lever to engage the brakes at a low level. You do not want to set the power high enough to lock up the brakes as this can cause...

  • How to Test if Brake Controller is Sending Power Back to 7-Way Connector
    To test any trailer brake controller you simply need to hook a multimeter like part # PTW1714 to the brake controller output pin (5 o'clock position) and see if you are getting about 12V of power when you set the brake controller to the highest setting and apply the brakes manually.

  • How to Inspect/Test Electric Trailer Brake Magnets
    For starters, you'll want to give the magnets a good looking over. If you look at the front face of the magnet that rides against the armature surface of the brake drum, you should not see any of the copper wiring that's encased within the magnet. If you do, it's a sure sign that the magnets need replacing. Then, use a multimeter like # PTW1714 and check the wires feeding the magnet while a helper holds the manual brake lever down on your brake controller. You should be seeing at least...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Lights and Blower Motor for 2015 Jeep Cherokee After Launching Boat
    My first thought after reading this is if you disconnected the wiring from your trailer before you backed your trailer in the water to launch your boat. If you didn't then that would explain the issue. Since water and electricity don't like each other very much what probably happened is that (if you didn't disconnect anything) you had a short somewhere and you need to inspect all of your wiring. It could be that the wiring connector itself either on your 2015 Jeep Cherokee or your boat...

  • How to Test HydraStar HBA-CAM Module with Multimeter
    Essentially the adapter part # HBA-CAM is designed to simulate amperage draw of a brake magnet by use of resistance. So you can use an multimeter like # PTW1714 set to read amperage to probe each wire of the adapter. As long as you are seeing over 7.5 amps the adapter would should allow a brake controller to think a trailer is connected.

  • Heater on Thomas Payne Theater Seating Not Working
    There could be 2 different issues here, so I'll give you a way to test out the control box which will help us figure out what the issue might be. To test the heater unplug the red and black wires from the control box (located behind and under your recliner) and test using a multimeter like part # PTW1714. Using the continuity setting on the meter, check and see if there is continuity on the wires of the control box- if you have continuity then that means the control box is bad and you...

  • How to Test Trailer Brake Magnets for Power
    Since you have had the RV dealer look at the brakes, they have likely done this already, but in order to test the trailer brake magnets for power you will need a 12 volt battery and a multimeter like # PTW1714. To test individual brake magnets for proper function, sever the magnet wires and connect the ammeter between the positive terminal of a 12-volt battery and one of the magnet wires; it does not matter which one. Then connect the other magnet wire to the negative battery terminal....

  • How to Test Power Output for the Tekonsha Primus IQ # TK90160
    From what I could find in the linked instructions it looks like the display will keep reading n.c. even if you are using the override manual. You can still test the output voltage of the Tekonsha Primus IQ # TK90160 at the 5 o'clock pin of your 7-Way though. What you need to do is move the power wheel (rotate with upwards motion) to increase the power level to max and then use the override manual lever to send power back to your 7-Way. If you use a multimeter like part # PTW1714 you can...

If you continuity then that means the control box is bad and you can replace it with part # 195-387596. If you don't have continuity then the heater is bad and...

If you do have continuity the control box is simply bad and you can replace it with the Replacement Control Box for Thomas Payne Momentum Recliners and Sofas # 195-387596.

  • How to Install 7-Way Plug Wiring Correctly on a 1975 Toyota Land Cruiser
    Thank you for the pictures! A common misconception is that there is a specific wire color for each specific function. Although there are "typical" wire colors, nothing is set in stone so your best bet is to test for function. Using a circuit tester like part # PTW2979 or a multimeter like part # PTW1714 test each of your wires on your 1975 Toyota Land Cruiser by running through your lighting functions. Once you know what circuit each wire is connected to, use the picture of the 7-Way...

  • Will the Curt Echo Work with a 2006 Ford F-150 with the Factory Tow Package
    If the 7-Way on your 2006 Ford F-150 is from the factory then the 12V Power Pin in the 1 o'clock position should already be active. You can verify this by using a circuit tester like part # PTW2991 or a multimeter like part # PTW1714 to make sure there is constant power there. Some vehicle require that the key be in the on position for power to be sent to the 7-Way so if you initially don't have power try going that route. Let me know if you still don't have power and I can help you troubleshoot...

    I do have a possible brake controller that you can use but unfortuantely I can't really help you out with locating your stop light switch on a 2007 Freightliner Century Semi. The only advice I can really give is to use a circuit tester # PTW2992 or multimeter # PTW1714 to test which wire gets hot when you press the brake pedal. Other than that none of my resources have information on the location of the stop light wire for your 2007 Freightliner Century Semi. If you can't find the stop...

To do this, you're going to press and hold the power button for 5 seconds until the unit shuts off. After the unit is shut off, press the "ON" button to re-power on the unit. Additionally I also suggest checking your connections to the radio, as well as, checking for proper voltage with a multimeter # PTW1714....

    Trailer wiring can be a little frustrating to work with at times because there isn't a specific color wire that is "standard" for different circuits. Typically the right (passenger) side stop/turn will be on a green wire but that isn't always the case. To determine if the problem is on your tow vehicle or your trailer I recommend using a circuit tester # PTW2979 or a multimeter # PTW1714 to ensure that the connector on your tow vehicle is sending power to the right stop/turn circuit.

There are no current plug-and-play adapters to use for wiring the taillights, turn signals, and backup lights with the new bed. In order to be equipped with the parts you need, I recommend the 3-Piece Electrician Tool Set # PTW1714. This comes with wire cutters, a voltage reader, and a wire stripper. If you need just a voltage reader, I recommend the LCD Tester # PTW2992. If you need heat butt connectors,...
