Power and Ground If there is a problem which causes an entire circuit to be inoperative, the Distribution firs^ tw0 areas you need to check are the circuit's fuse and ground. The

EWD can direct you to other circuits which share the fuse or ground point. By operating these circuits, you can check the condition of the fuse and ground point without making a physical inspection. This saves you time! The following sections outline how this is done.
