Features 80A Automotive Current Tester Model AUT80 Turn the vehicle ignition OFF. Determine if the fixed maxi‐blade (7) or one of the adaptors (mini‐blade or ATC‐blade) will be used. If necessary, connect an adaptor (mini‐blade or ATC‐
blade) to the maxi‐blades by sliding the adaptor down over the maxi‐blades until it locks in place. Use caution as the blades can cause injury if mishandled. Remove the fuse from the vehicle’s fuse block for the circuit under test. Plug the test blades into the fuse box (where the fuse was removed). If maxi‐blade fuses are being used, insert the removed maxi‐blade fuse into the fuse jack (6) on the tester cable. If a mini‐blade or ATC‐blade adaptor was used, insert the shorting plug blade into the fuse jack (6) on the tester cable. The shorting plug is the supplied amber color plug. Before continuing please note that tests should be limited to a 10 second period. Longer tests could damage meter.
