Unhappy N00b question, how to check for good ground?

DO I use a multimeter? Do I put it on the ohm setting and what reading should I get if it's a good ground. thanks,

set it to read ohms...measure the resistance between your ground wire(without touching it) and the area you wish to connect to.

it's more like, how to check for a good ground at the ECU, at the harness plug.

I'm interested.. except the othe response wasn't very helpful. Need to be a little more descriptive/clear when you explain the motions of checking/doing something.

Thanks anyways,
-Eric

ah, ok, got it. if you use a multimeter, turn the meter to the highest ohm setting. test the meter by touching both probes together and make note as to where the ohm reading is. next, attach the + pos side of the probe to the wire you are testing and touch the - neg probe to the car chassis. If you have a good ground the ohm setting should jump to the original ohm reading, if not, then yo have a bad ground. good luck all and thanks for the help.
