Activating electrical components with negative (-) voltage

Contact the probe tip to the negative terminal of the component, the LED indicator should light RED.
While keeping an eye on the red LED indicator, quickly depress and release the power switch rearward (-). If the red
indicator changed instantly from RED to GREEN you may proceed with further activation. If the green indicator went
off at that instant or if the circuit breaker tripped, the Power Probe has been overloaded. This could have happened
for the following reasons:
· The contact is a direct positive voltage.
· The component is short-circuited.
· The component is a high amperage component (i.e., starter motor).
If the circuit breaker tripped, reset it by depressing the reset button.
WARNING: With this function a vehicle's fuse can be blown
or tripped if grounding the contact in series with it.
Activando Componentes Eléltricos con Voltaje Negativo (-)
Contacte la punta de prueba a la terminal negativa del componente, el LED indicador debe encenderse ROJO.
Mientras observa el indicador LED ROJO, presione rapidamente el interruptor hacia atrás (-). Si el indicador ROJO
cambia instantaneamente de ROJO a VERDE Ud. puede proceder con las pruebas. Si el indicador VERDE se apaga
y salta el fusible térmico indica un corto circuito o que el Power Probe fué sobrecargado. Ésto pudo haber sucedido
por las siguientes razones:
· El contacto es Volaje Positivo Directo.
· El componente está en corto circuito.
· El componente es de mucho flujo de amperios ( ej., motor de arranque ).
Si el fusible térmico saltó, resételo presionando la tecla ubicada en el lateral.
Depress the rocker
switch rearward
to ground the horn.
Presione el
intrerruptor para
