looking for the bright to dim transition in the lights will isolate the area of the ground.

(3) Notice that the indicating light connected to the intentional ground is also dim.
The ground current indicating circuit provides the operator of the regulator with a visual
indication of current flow through the intentional ground, as well as a pass/fail test for the
presence of a significant ground on the load, a significant ground being a ground fault of low
enough resistance to conduct enough current to light the indicating lamp.
