How to find direct shortage placement - Mystique Mercury Cars & Trucks

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

You can't just put a fuse in because it will keep blowing. So instead, jump the fuse with a flasher relay. This will cause pulses you can pick up with a cheap circuit sensor you can get at a place like Harbor freight. When you trace the circuit and it stops pulsing, you found the short.
An alternative is to disconnect things one at a time, until the short goes away.
If you don't have a spare flasher, you can just use a test light. If you jump a fuse with a test light normally it is half brightness, because it is in series with something in the circuit.
It will be full brightness if there is a short, because the light will be going straight to ground an not be in series with any other resistance load.

I tried to charge my car battery with a Chicago Electric charger model 66783. I followed the directions for charging the battery in the vehicle. After selecting the charge rate of 10 AMPs, the ammeter pulsed back and forth between zero and about 9 AMPs. The 'Charge Complete' light cycled on and off also. This is not consistant with what the directions describe is supposed to happen. Do I have a charger problem or a battery problem? I have not driven my vehicle (1954 Chevy truck) for about 6 mont
