    ie. BEFORE installing any Loads...
    If I didn't want to power something to verify connections, I would just use an ohmmeter and check continuity, instead of a small battery.

    RD: You can do that When the full harness with all the wires is lying on a bench, but once installed into the car... not so easy since there might be 10-15 feet between the two points you want to check continuity ...

    I've had to wring out wires on machine tools over 50 feet long before. Just ground one end, and check through the bundle on the other end looking for continuity to ground. Or, just rig up long test lead. A small battery could be made to work though.
