Does anyone else have this tool? any issues or things not to do with it?
I haven't but is HEAVILY loved on Amazon
I run a class 8 truck garage and about half of the techs use these. I use mine all the time. you have a power button ground button, and a spare ground wire off of unit. It also shows voltage. There is a internal breaker in it so you don't melt wires. If you do a lot of electrical work it is a must have.
holy shit that is a cool tool. I was contemplating buying a 12V DC bench power supply. Not anymore!
It also shows voltage. It make two different noises one for power and one for ground.
I bought it with some extra probes and tips. I used it to trouble shoot my old EXPLODER ford power windows and test after installing new regulator. Much easier than clipping wire to the car battery or a spare battery on the floor. I could use the power cycle button to make the windows go up and down...before I put the door panels and wiring back together. I have not used it for awhile, as I simply have not had any DC problems.
Defiantly would buy again.
I dont have one but seen them in action in our shop. Really helps to narrow ground or power issues all over the car. Plug onto the battery and test the affected circuit at its base, it will show you real dang quick if there is a voltage drop or bad fuse, or crossed wire. Id recommend it if you are constantly chasing gremlins.
I finally bought one a little while ago and have used it extensively, I am still learning how to use all its features but would highly suggest buying one... Came in very handy cleaning up and making a new wire harness for the emergency system side of of pick up that I added a bunch of stuff to. Worth the money, but I wish I got the power probe 4 instead
Don't use it on certain circuits,will smoke up to 4 computers.One of my co workers did this.Used it on a circuit he was not supposed to use it on and smoked a computer up
