I have a 5 pin potentiometer and I cant find a data sheet for the pin layout, any help would be greatly appreciated

The three pins in a row are the potentiometer, the centre one is the "wiper" that moves.

The two on the other side that are not connected are simply mounting points.  :smiley-lol:  :smiley-lol:

You wouldn't happen to what harness pins those traces on the potentiometer go to would you?

Have you got a DMM to trace them out yourself?
Tom.. :)
Everything runs on smoke, let the smoke out, it stops running....

No I don't have a DMM

That does not make much sense!

The potentiometer appears to be connected across the regulator output (and ground) and its wiper - thus a variable voltage - goes to a group of components and thence on to the microprocessor ADC input.  Just as you might do with an Arduino.

What are you proposing to do with this?

Its a really useful tool for many things...

At less than $10 in a thrift store you have no excuse not to have one.
