i thought that an indicator when my fuse brakes would be useful for me. i mean when the fuse breaks a buzzer will start buzzing.
maybe japala could draw me a circuit, what relay to use etc. :wink:

I got one working. Just buy a buzzer with integral circuit and hook it up paralelly to the fuse-- one buzzer lead before the fuse, one after it! :D

Just be sure that the buzzer can handle the current the the circuit after it might be taking. If the fuse blows, it is a clear sign that the circuit after it is taking too much current and when the fuse goes out, all the current will be going through this buzzer and its circuitry. If you shorted the thing, it may be taking amperes and amperes of current. :) Just to make sure that you know what might happen. :)
