is it "good"? no. Will it do the job? yes. Same thing I am using right now. for $5 its not a bad thing to have around. Then you don't feel too bad if it gets hurt either, aka dropped or blown up. Word of advice, the battery that comes in it is crap so be sure to turn it off when you arent using it, lol. In all truth its $5 well spent. I'll continue to use it until i get a job in the field and need a "real" meter. :P

take a look at one of these too http://www.harborfreight.com/circuit-tester-30779.html this thing can be handy when troubleshooting. that particular light does 6 and 12v systems. cool? lol. anyway, 12v test light, worth looking at.

cheerz, im off to fix computerz

I got a couple of THESE test lights. The wire & clip isn't the greatest, but I put a better/bigger alligator clip & longer wires on mine & they work great.

Default Re: dash light not working

exactly how do i use them? and where am i supposed to use them? yes i know the two pokers test the power and shit but like i just tried to use it on the fuse box and it didnt do anythiing...im using an old school one from my gfs dad

----------

pretty sure i already checked fuse 31, going to check again now

----------

fuse 31 (park lamps and license plate lamps) seems to be blown but not related to my main concern.....wil go get a 20a fuse...i have none

it has a black dot on both sides in the middle of the metal part who knows...could fix the problem

Sure it is. It affects the fog lamps, dash night illumination and running lamps (not headlamps).

I was under the impression the side markers and flashers were working now. It looks like 31 feeds those lights as well. Maybe I interpreted the diagram wrong? Or maybe I misunderstood what was and was not working? I was suspicious of 31 as well but ultimately wrote it off because I figured the markwrs were working.

Hmm
