Or touch the leads to the contacts on top of the fuse. 0V = good. 12V (or -12V if you got the leads reversed) = bad.
That's assuming you have B+ going to the fuses. If you don't have B+, you have other problems than a fuse (eg, blown fusible link, bad wiring, etc).

With your procedure, you have to take two readings (each side of the fuse to ground). With my method, you only have to take one reading (across the fuse). Not a big deal, just a different way to accomplish the same task.

I must be missing something because that's exactly what I mean.

Maybe I am misunderstanding your procedure.
If you ground the black probe, you need to check V on both sides of the fuse to verify it is good (or bad).
If you know which side is B+, you only have to check V on the load side of the fuse ... but how many people are going to know which side of a fuse is B+?

Using "my" procedure, one only has to take a single reading per fuse. Plus it's easier (for me, anyway) to put the probes in the right place when the test points are close together.

But either method will work. Use whichever works best for you.

I don't have a probe yet. But I did smoke a few racks of ribs last night and they came out amazing.

Haven't touched the fuses yet. Haven't had time. Hopefully at some point this week.

NOW we make sense, sadly though I've seen some cars where you move 3 spots down and the B+ is on the other side of the fuse. Hence me recommending both sides.

Unless you plan on using your meter for other tasks, the cheapest one you can find should work well. $10-15 at WalMart.*
Edit: I recommend a digital meter. If you connect the meter with reverse polarity, you can bend the needle on an analog meter. A digital will just display a minus sign.

Or you can get a 12V test light for next to nothing.

Yum.

Took me forever, but I got around to the fuses. Pulled a few and swapped them. Audio from the front works. Now it appears to be an amp/sub issue. I have no bass whatsoever and it sounds like audio only comes from the front speakers. Very tin-y sounding.

I've just been very lazy and not wanting to work in 90 degree weather. Haha. The front speakers work but the bose amp is still dead. I'm not even concerned anymore. Car doesn't get driven much now with me having a new job.

I purchased a 100 CT set of different fuses. I plan to eventually just start swapping every fuse imaginable and seeing what does what.
