The most foolproof way to check a fuse is to pull it out of its receptacle and hook up a continuity tester to both blades of the fuse. But if you do this while the fuse is plugged in, you could get continuity through a path other than the fuse (for instance, both sides of the wire may be grounded when you check the fuse).
Once you run the wire from the radio to the fuse box area, you're almost done. Just strip away about half an inch from the end of the power wire, and then insert the bare wire into the butt connector on the fuse tap lead. Use the crimp connector to secure the power wire to the lead, and then plug the fuse tap into an available slot in the fuse panel. If performing the job in an older car, first strip about half an inch from the end of the power wire. Then use the Phillips screwdriver to secure the bare wire to an unused terminal on the fuse box. Insert an appropriately rated fuse into the slot on the head of the fuse tap plug, or the fuse box itself in classic vehicles and you're done. Just reconnect the negative battery cable, turn on the ignition and fire up the radio. If you have already connected the radio to your car speakers, it should be able to play music immediately.
