No its KINDA like a grounding feature in my volt tester
it just sounds (tones) when there is a connection between the two pin tester's on the volt meter ( for example) if you had a 5 foot section of wire and you held it on both ends it would sound tone if there was no breaks in the line
if there was a break no tone
no nothing was melted or anything it was solid
i would have never visually seen it there was no signs of damage
on the backside of the plug. there is a rubber weather plug that the two wires pass through than they connect to two (tamiya pin)type metal connector
where the wire is crimped to, it had broken rite there! and since the wire was tucked into the weather plug, it did not look broken.
the volt meter with a tone feature just made its worth
