Kix that is the problem If I blew fuses THAT OFTEN then I'd know "3rd fuse from the left".
But if you blow one say every 2 years, and not the same fuse.. YES, you need an indicator of which fuse it is.
Progressive Dynamics knows this, thus they put the LED and Resistor on the board so if the fuse goes pop the LED lights up.. Likewise West Mountain Radio.. I much prefer this to the more expensive Smart-Glo fuses cause.. Well, I need to replace the fuse, not the LED. and smart glow's need a special dual LED too since they don't know which lead is Positive.
In the old days of glass cartridge fuses you could tell which one went POP without removing it from the socket, but these new fangled jobs..... Well they don't work like that.
