I did hook up a new sense wire from my fuse box and it seems to be working decently but I won't know for sure until I can actually road test it, which I won't be able to do until spring as it is snowing here now.

Thanks everyone for your help. I hope replacing the sense wire works.
"0.0" on your meters display is better than "--" when measuring resistance. Any numerical value shown means that there is connectivity between the two points of the wire. The higher the numerical value that is displayed then the more resistance the wire has which means that current doesn't travel as easily through the wire.
Whenever you get more time to play with it post your findings up.
