Dimmer Control

If you need to check your dimmer potentiometer here is a tip.
No need to disconnect or to reach inside the connector to reach the pins.
Only pin "C" & "D" are used and test contacts are located outside connector housing. Here are pictures to better describe.
Should measure between 0 and 5KΩ.
