Parasitic Drain fuse drop testing

posted Jun 13, 2016 13:40:44 by AndyMacFadyen
I wanted to do simple test to improve my skills with this test and check my multimeters meters were up to the job the setup was fairy simple a 300 ohm resistor , a 3A mini blade fuse in a holder and a battery booster pack for power.

I am pretty pleased with the results.
I found it better to connect one lead to the main battery feed connection on the fuse box with an alligator clip as getting 2 probes to make a reliable connection on the mini blade fuse test pads was hit or miss.
