Default BAT, SOL, & IGN Electrical Circuits

Greetings All,

I'm new to the forum. Forgive me if I didn't find the answer to this question via a search.

I'm testing new wiring harnesses. But just in case,... I've connected a 9V Duracell instead of the car battery. The question is: If all electrical components (starter, alternator, relays, etc.) are disconnected, should hot leads on the BAT, SOL, and IGN circuits maintain a constant 9V when connected to a Volt/Ohm meter?

If you have a circuit, the 9v battery connected to the wire, then the other side of the battery to ground, and you're checking the BAT red wire, yes. THe IGN wire will have 9v with the key on, and the SOL wire (purple 10 ga) when the key is turned to START.

Is the harness in the car or on the bench? I'm guessing you have it installed and trying to make sure you don't have a short somewhere.
Including the year would help, I'm not picking, just your information is a bit hazy,
