with a dvm set on 20v, connect one lead to center terminal and one lead to outer terminal and note reading ~12 = good

then connect one lead to center terminal and one lead to good ground and note reading ~12 = good

then connect one lead to outer terminal and one lead to good ground and note reading ~0 = good

then stick one lead in engine coolant and one lead to good ground and note reading ~0 = good

clean both battery terminals and connections

the cables should be at least 6ga 18"
one goes to the starter monting bolt
one goes to the starter solenoid

"FOR TESTING PRUPOSES ONLY" to hotwire a ea81 series subaru, + wire from coil + to bat. + and + wire from starter battery cable + to starter small male spade terminal

does not work for ea82

if your volt gauge goes up and down with the turn signal on, welcome to the club!
