- disconnect negative battery cable.
- connect multimeter between battery and cable.
- read amp draw... 15-20
millivolts milliamps is on the high end.
- unplug fuses one at a time, until the problem circuit is identified.

Those show notes have a pretty good typo... It should read milliamps, not millivolts... Sorry.

I did not know that.
Great info. I didn't realize you could troubleshoot using such a small measurement. My truck is getting older and may need this info eventually. Thanks for the show!
