Would've thought it all depends on the type, manufacturer, etc. as they use different methods of operation. If I recall they are mostly capacitors and volt-sense switches (although the carlos fandango versions can have IC's to make them 'smart') and often encapsulated so unless you know what's in there it's a bit tricky to see what or how you might test them... now watch me get shot down by a proper sparky :O)
