That is a good tool, excellent for checking individual fuseways, which really is all you need to locate unacceptable current drains more precicely than the one I suggested.
My one is OK for total current drain.

When you remove the key does the barrel pop out about 5mm?

You can also get leads for your multi meter that plug into the fuse holder. Which are a bit cheaper if you're not using them much.

I saw them some time ago, Nick, and I was going to mention them, but I have forgotten what they are called and where to find them!
I need to know so as to enter something on Ebay's search window - can you help, please?

That's why I didn't remember details about them, Nick - the price! FH!

That's just the retail price. They're about a tenner from Amazon, which is about the same price as standard test leads.

When I was working at the college, they would have kindly loaned me the parts to make up myself.....

Maplins are currently selling the units for 6.99, so I bought one for mini blade fuses to complete my set.

Thanks Nick; do you have a catalogue number, please? Maplins' website usually argues with me!

That;s a better price, thanks!
They made reference to just the probes being available, but no details - do you know any more? I have multimeters already, so just the blade adaptor with leads to 4mm plugs would be perfect.
