I bought this to help me trace a short in the rear defrost circuit of my car. I have a decent understanding of electricity, but I have a hard time finding grounds and shorts. In the end this product helped push me to find the trouble, but it didn't pinpoint it exactly. For example when I disconnected the rear defrost wires at each end and injected the signal at the fuse panel, I got a signal along both the ground wire and the lead wire. I didn't understand it at the time, but the two wires had shorted to each other in the wiring harness, a fact that would have made sense earlier to someone with better electrical troubleshooting knowledge. It took me a couple of hours to find the trouble and to understand the Power Probe signals, but at least I found it. I bought this to hopefully avoid tearing into wiring harnesses, but in the end I had to open several harnesses and track individual wires to find the trouble. I'm giving 4 stars because the Power Probe helped push me to find a problem when the dealer wanted $100 just to look at it, and I know the dealer would have replaced the whole wiring harness that I simply repaired. So in the end it saved me money and helped increase my electrical skills.

I am an automotive tech. I was hoping for a way to track electrical problems and decided to spend my Christmas present money on it. I am not sorry i did, I have used it a couple of times now and have been surprised at how accurate and easy to use it is.

I started with a Saturn who's power seat didn't work. After 3-4 minutes of setting up the tool, I found the short to ground in shorter time than it took to repair the problem, that's less than 5 minutes. The wire was rubbed through on the floor board under the kick panel and sill guard. That is not a place you would check right away.

Anyway, this tool has paid for itself with just 2 repairs.

I consider myself an advanced shade-tree mechanic. Bought this tool to find a short in a pickup truck turn signal circuit. Although this product was instrumental in the overall process, it DID NOT find the short itself. Contrary to the simplistic representation in YouTube and included instructional videos, it's a rather confusing tool to use. I expected it to do as advertised. I connected and began the process of searching for the short - it was more like a wild goose chase. The machine frequently presented false positives. Having worked with the tool for 5+ hours over the course of two days, I finally grasped how it worked and the logic behind its functionality -- it has limitations. For me, the tool's value was only to show whether I had eliminated the short or not, (open or closed circuit). I finally found the short the old fashion way - by inspecting every wire loom I could get my hands on. The short was under the dash where a sharp edge on the parking brake peddle assembly pierced a thick wire loom. To the contrary, the tool had me chasing the short outside the cab. In order to effectively find a short with this tool or alike, you really need an electrical schematic for the vehicle you're working on. That way you can trace through the proper wire looms and avoid going down the wrong path. In closing, this tool is not the magic bullet it's claimed to be, but it was helpful in the overall process.

Most tracers only detect the "E" field, which wont work for most car work. This tracer nicely traces the magnetic field from current flow as well, and tells you the flow direction. Nice. This is the only tracer that I've found that will dependably trace auto wiring.

Magnificent device. Didn't have it out of the box 2 minutes and my friend used it to determine a short on his old Chev truck. Def worth the 125.00 I paid. I ve seen the 500 plus models in the Grainger catalog, and can say this is a bargain

easy to understand the way it works. based on the circuit it can be hard to determine where the short or break is. the easier it is to separate the wires the easier to use

Saves a lot of wire chasing time. It cuts down on my wire bundle unraveling time. I would recommend this as an essential tool in any technicians box.
