Self Testing Fuses

#1

Was in the fuse box on my TR today locating the flasher after updating to LED lights when I noticed sometime different about the tops of the fuses in an upgraded section of the fuse box. I pulled one saw what looked like a LED in the top. Tonight I goggled ATC Auto LED Fuses and found fuses call Self Testing Fuses. When they blow a LED lights in the top. Picked up several 30 packs from harbor freight. Going to change the fuses in my TR, Truck and boat. Earlier this year I had a no start condition in my truck I finally track to a blown fuse. :idea:

JR that is a good find. I have not heard of them but now I want to get some. Should make it a quick find in some dark areas where my fuse panels are. :thumbsup:

Earlier this year after 3 months at sea I arrived back at the dock where my truck was parked at 2100 and found it would not start. Took 2 hours in the dark to find out that the starter fuse was weak and had blown. Saw this fuse and :idea: .
