[DML] Re: question for the experts about testing automotive electric devices

A computer power supply will probably not work well. Especially if you
try to run a motor that has a high starting current draw. Try not to
overcomplicate things. If you have to "bench" something just make up a
couple of wires from the battery in the car. Best to include a fuse in
case the item you are trying to run is shorted.
