INSTALLATION TROUBLESHOOTING – If you’re having trouble with your Rivet installation, here are some deeper things to test… (You might want to check our Installation Checklist first, to run down several the simpler things that can cause trouble.)


1. With an OHM meter, measure between the pickup’s connection pins for these results:

OHM readings…

a) START to FINISH pins should read approximately 8K or so in ohms. (If the reading is zero it is shorted, if “open loop” the wire would seem to be broken.)

b) TAP to FINISH pins should read approximately 7K or so in ohms. (If the reading is zero it is shorted, if “open loop” the wire would seem to be broken.)

c) AUX START to AUX FINISH pins should read approximately 5K or 4K, or there about. (If the reading is zero it is shorted, if “open loop” the wire would seem to be broken.)

 

Ground-leak testing…

d) The GROUND pin should read “open loop” when measuring from it to any of the other pins. (If the reading is zero it is shorted, if an actual numeric value is measured then the opposite end of that wire is shorted.)
