As you may know all electrical testing assumes a good connection, check PJs carefully. In thirty plus year of electro/mechanical trouble shooting vary rarely was the problem in the harness per say but rather at points of movement and most times were the wire exits the harness or fastened in place. Old school was to pull a screwdriver using the blade along the insulation with tension on the wire and feel the break or just pull the wire and watch the insulation stretch. If your meter probes are needle type you can just stab them through the insulation and make tests at various points.
