That was such a nice explanation that I added it to the thread on what to do if the quick test doesn't work! Thanks.
- What to do when the 10-minute wheel speed sensor diode-action quick test doesn't always work, especially on brand new non-OEM wheel speed sensors (1)

It also might be nice if we started listing the DMMs that do work (e.g., my Fluke 75 worked perfectly) so that others know what to borrow or buy.

PS: Googling, OL apparently means "over limit", as in "infinity".
PSS: My Fluke 75 worked perfectly on the diode test.
PSSS: Just to be clear, as JeffStri has often clarified, the hall-effect sensor isn't a diode; it just acts sort of like a diode does - and we take advantage of that in the quick test - but there 'are' six other tests that can be run.
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
