You want to set to Ohms. I wouldn't recommend a test light if you are testing anything that might beconnected to ECU or such.

they sure do:thumbsup buut it's not the safest thing to use because it's not that sensitive to resistance. an ohmmeter is way more sensitive and can pick up resistance where a test light cant even begin to pick it up.....oh well this is coming from me who instead of buying the proper length bolts for my turbo, just put a couple oversized nuts on as spacers. but ya use the ohmmeter:thumbsup
