HUH ??

Any idea on how to test sensors using a bulb

A traditional bulb tester can't be used for sensor testing as the bulb only tests continuity in an electrical circuit.

To test a sensor you'll need a multimeter and some back probes to be able to access the tiny pins in the sockets.

You'll be measuring voltage output and resistance of the sensor and then compare your values to the manufacturer specifications. This will then determine if its good or bad.

Have a read of this. It may help.
