You will need a multimeter for a start, or a test light. There is really only power and ground. You either dont have power or dont have ground. Why do you say that it is faulty? Is it because when you plug something in, like a neon, it doesnt work. I know with mine, its simply a case of bad contacts. The contacts in the cigarette lighter dont match up with the neons contacts nicely. To see if its working or not, use the actual cigarette lighter. You may be doing that but just in case. But if you have a test light or multimeter I can tell you what to do to test.

the wires have a tendancy to come out of the clamps on the underside

the wires on the back are poorly attached to the back of the unit and fray over time, solution is to solder them

also check your fuses
