    We don't have any of that in our A+ course.

    This is what an inline fuse looks like:


    Other types use a "blade type" fuse:


    One end hooks to the battery, the other to the +12v input of your device. If something happens and your device pulls too much power...*blink*....your fuse blows rather than causing your car to catch fire. Very useful. I've also heard that you should put it close to the battery, probably so there is no opportunity for the wire in between to heat up and short out without a fuse on it.

    btw, if you wire up your OPUS or whatever it is in the car you are trying to power, if you buy and use a Stereo Amplifier hookup kit, it SHOULD come with a inline fuse on it already. *never seen one that doesn't*

    No! No! No!

    I didnt go to school to learn these things, I went in knowing everything, I taught myself, but needed to go get the actual college degree, etc. I knew more than my teacher, lmfao.

    Of course, I'm 25, and Ive been tearing apart computers since the bbs days. And, I can code, does that make me a overacheiver?

    LoL.....an overachiever here at 25 years old would mean you're on the 5th carputer. I've done three carputers so far, and I'm 23. Computers/computer science/computer engineering....I've done it all.
