Installing a Voltmeter

Modern vehicles (such as an EcoSport) rely heavily on electronic systems, thus, it is necessary to monitor the voltage of the car’s power supply, as well as battery health. Installing a voltmeter will allow you to observe the voltage changes whenever a gadget or accessory is used.

Voltmeters are widely available and can be purchased in almost any automotive shop. Installing a voltmeter is also very simple: just connect the red wire (positive) to any of the empty slots in a car’s fuse box, and connect the black wire (negative) to the chassis of the vehicle.
