    Yeah there doesn't seem to be a.setting for.continuity testing. It's a very simple meter. I guess I'll get my hands on one to use

    Ok, i was going about the testing improperly but it's done now, i found the two contacts that are in continuity when the button is pressed.

    Now to get a soldering iron with tips small enough to get the job done. So do I tin the wires w/ the solder, and then heat the contacts and put the tinned wires in contact w/ the iron contcats of the button circuit? What wattage soldering iron would be best for this job?
