diodes let current/voltage flow in only one direction. to test, you have to make sure, diode, is disconnected to the circuit, on one side, so you dont get feedback, from the other side, of the circuit. then all you need is an ohm meter. it shout read open in one direction, closed in the other. my amprobe also has a continuity sound function. all that means is, when your leads are the front an back of an object, you hear a sound if voltage can get through, when you reverse the leads, same thing.. if you hear a sound both ways its a short, if you hear nothing both ways its an open, how ever, if you hear a sound going the way the voltage is supposed to go it is a good thing. if you hear a sound the other way it is not. same goes for not hearing a sound.
this needs much editing. i am not good at explaining things.
