Just wondering if anyone knows or can test for me how many amps a civic draws when starting it? Thank you in advance.

volt meter set on amps connected to the starter during start up should show this. 1: my civic is at home. 2: i blew my voltmeter up

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get an induction amperage gauge.

It lays on the positive cable and measures the electrical field.

My amps have the clamp :)

Lucky for me, I know what your talking about :)

I'll did up dads old tester, I've seen 250 amps on a rebuilt 350 SBC, I'd guess a stock Honda would pull over 100 amps with ease.

fluke and uei for the win...... i love the amp clamps.....

great for so many uses.... car audio, seeing amp draw on power cables... mine also has a tach attachment, for those pesky non corrected factory tachs.

PUI post BTW!!!!!!

Dads old tester laid on the main power cable, works the same way as a clamp style.

Just measuring the EMF field given off by the current flowing.
