Make some jumper leads which can temporarily plug into the fuse box. Connect the jumper leads to a 60 watt headlight bulb.
The HL bulb will glow dim with less than 5 amps of current going thru it, then when one wiggles the harness just wrong (right?) and contacts the shorted area it will burn Full Bright!
But it Will Not Burn OUT.
Even connected between the battery and the main cable (pull the light fuse) the starter motor can't burn it, but the starter motor won't actually operate on a mere 5 amps / 60 watts. You will only hear the starter relay 'click' & the HL bulb will go full bright.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
