Why do we do a continuity test?

A continuity test is an important test in determining the damaged components or broken conductors in a circuit. It can also help in determining if the soldering is good, if the resistance is too high for flow of current or if the electrical wire is broken between two points.

What is continuity on a multimeter?

Continuity testing is the act of testing the resistance between two points. If there is very low resistance (less than a few Ωs), the two points are connected electrically, and a tone is emitted. If there is more than a few Ωs of resistance, than the circuit is open, and no tone is emitted.
