To perform this test, use EZ Battery Reconditioning Review your high amp clamp around the positive battery cable leading to the starter. Fire up your scope, and adjust the time base to 100ms per division. (You can make finer adjustments to clarify the pattern). Make sure the battery is strong and disable the fuel and/or ignition system to prevent the engine from starting, just as you would if you were performing a regular compression test.My scope of choice is a PICO 3443. With it's ability to record, I can go back and review the pattern starting from the beginning. On my older UEI scope, the pattern wasn't as clear and would disappear from the screen if I tried to adjust the voltage divisions to make it clearer. That, however, is easily corrected by using the AC coupling feature on your scope. By removing the DC component, only the pattern remains...centered in your screen.
