GLASS AUTOMOTIVE FUSES RANGE
Glass Automotive fuses are found on many older (pre 1980) British Cars particularly with Lucas wiring systems.
Glass Auto fuses are also found on many import vehicles, tractors, plant , and excavators.
Blown glass auto fuses are easily recognised by the broken fuse wire, though either a test light or multimeter can also be used to provide an accurate check.
Fuses are used a safety protection device to prevent failure of the wiring circuit in an overcurrent situation such as component failure eg a seized motor, or a short circuit to ground caused by damage to wiring insulation and a bare wire touching chassis ground. If a fuse keeps blowing the circuit and components need thorough checking.
