It's a sensor not a meter.
I monkey'd with my ignition cylinder while it was still in. I think I ended up just changing the switch out and keeping the original keyed portion.

Check your bulbs and fuse with a continuity meter. My guess is that you have a blown bulb and part of the element are grounding against the base, so take out all your bulbs and test them. While you are at it male sure you have a good ground at the lamp housing. I have a continuity setting on my volt...

Have you already tried twisting the key really hard? IF that doesn't work make sure that your parking lights, turn signal, emergency flashers and all your brake lamps are working.

Everything electrical is tied to the exterior lighting and anything that is not is tied to the dash lights.

Adjust the choke.....loosen the three screws and turn the housing clockwise to loosen the tension on the choke spring or turn it clockwiswe and increase tension....sounds to me like too much tension though.
