I am testing a sensor which is supposed to have a resistance of 1100 ohms. I switched to ohms,touched the probes together and zeroed my multimeter. then I inserted the probes into the sensor. The needle went one line above the 1.

This looks to me like 1.1ohms not 1100 would this be a correct assumption.

From right to left the numbers for ohms read 1,2,3,4,5,6,8,10,20,30,40,60,100,200,the last is1k and then the 8 on its side for infinity.

Thanks;Mainzy

On the Ohm scale you can see Rx1, Rx10, Rx100 etc. In what position is the range knob on you meter?

The multimeter is a 19 dollar unit. There is only one place on it where you measure ohms. It is labeled ohm X1K.
