Just want to be sure before you order a new one:
When you measure resistance, you have to DISCONNECT at least one of the 2 leads to properly read the resistance. You can't just stick the meter across the two leads - ONE of them must be disconnected from everything else.
Otherwise, you're also reading the resistance of everything else in the circuit.
