Answer: 
No, it will only work on a live outlet.
I suggest you disconnect all loads from your dead outlets, and then look at your breaker panel to see which breaker is tripped. The handle will be in an intermediate position between on and off. Push the handle off and then on to reset. If the breaker stays in the on position, the problem is in one of the loads. If not, you have a short in your wiring which should

Good luck.

Answer: 
I was intrigued by the question and did a test this way. plugged transmitter into outlet and knowing where the wire is in the room, tried to find it with the receiver. It does not work this way. Either the wire is too far away from the receiver or the + and - wires are side by side and cancels the signal.Sorry.

Answer: 
This is designed for 120v household wiring. Most autos these days are 12v. Many large trucks are 24v, and older cars (about 50 years old and older) were 6v systems.

Answer: 
The ET300 will not work on car wires because it requires a live circuit. If you are trying to trace wires, the Klein Tools VDV500-808 would be a good option.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Gadget Works as expected - great! Easy to use, excellent instructions. August 16, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dumb Design Flaw Ruins It Decent performance and price, but has a dumb flaw. As the instruction state, you turn the receiver unit on by touching the button, then off by holding the button down for 3 seconds. The button protrudes from the side, so any inadvertent touch turns it on. So no storing the receiver where it can get jostled, or your battery goes dead. I'm going to throw mine out and replace it with a unit that has a better design. August 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Returning to store Piece of junk. It identified a outlet in my garage on 2 different circuits breakers. I plugged in a lamp and shut off both of them and the lamp never went out. I followed the instructions to the letter. Taking back to the store. August 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by circuit finder Every homeowner should have one in their tool pouch. July 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Finder Worked as Advertised Works as advertised. Sometimes it's a little ambiguous but resolved itself on second or third try. Helps immensely when tracking down circuits and circuit breakers. July 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money I read the manual and followed the instructions and the finder would either identify the wrong breaker or not pick up anything at all. I will have to get a higher priced unit that is effective enough to identify any circuits. July 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good product good tool, work well, very good price. i recommend to every one. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by For powered circuits only Works great, but the circuit being traced to a breaker must be active. If dead circuit device is no good. May 23, 2016
