https://youtube.com/watch?v=gE1iNeq9I0IAre you reluctant to poke around your car’s fuse box? By design, those multi-colored cartridges constitute the weak links in your electrical system. If something goes haywire, they’ll fail before the rest of the circuit, preventing further damage to your car—or worse, electrical fires. But not everyone thinks to check if they are functioning properly. Hagerty’s Matt Lewis teaches you the simple procedure using the handy-dandy multimeter. And if one is unavailable, he shows you a quick visual test to make sure your wiring is protected.
