Morning fellow Mudders,
Finally finished building a new wiring harness for my 82' FJ45.
No fuses are in, all switches are installed, the battery is not connected.
I'm getting about 5K ohms from Batt+ to ground and less than 1K ohms from ACC to ground. This is from the fuse panel.
Is this normal or do I need to start troubleshooting?

Thanks,
Argyfoe

I have no idea what the answer to your question is, but a quick Googley search found this:

I just went out and checked mine. I get 18.8K from the + lead to ground (lifted from the battery of course). I have the 3fe ecu that is a constant load so I know that is in the circuit.

Thanks for the input. Looks like I'll start troubleshooting. "Half-split bracketing" time. (If you get that, your a certain age and swam in the right circles. :) )
