Do the large amp fuses under the hood have battery voltage?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Have voltage? I looked at the fuses and they arent burnt. How do i check for voltage, and which fuse?
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 2 months ago.

Check all the high amp fuses for battery voltage using a volt meter.

High amp meaning 30

Any reason why the signal lights click off and on when i hook up the battery?
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 1 month ago.

Let me approach this different.

Remove the IGSW 40amp fuse at the left kick panel. What voltage do you get there?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.

17.5
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 1 month ago.

A battery can not have 17.5 volts. It would blow up. There is something wrong with your meter.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
12.4 at the battery, new battery
Expert:  Chris (aka - Moose) replied 1 month ago.

Are you sure your getting 17.5 at the fuse I had you remove, your not getting battery voltage there as well?
