Power probe-cool tool!

Recommended Posts

Okay, this power probe tool is a must have if trouble shooting electrical problems. A pair of wires feeding out of the probe go to the car battery to power it. Then touch the tip of the tool to whatever electrical part you're fixing.


If the point you touch is equal to ground, the probe will light up green and beep with a certain tone. If the point is 12v, then the probe will light up red and beep another way. You can quickly go around and see what's hot and what's ground.


If the point being tested in not ground or hot, then push the toggle button up or down for 12v or ground to apply 12v or ground and see if it fixes the problem. It's available at Amazon for $61 in a basic kit or deluxe kit is more.
