The Automobile has developed and changed through the years from the invention and increased human-being's scope of activity. Junction Box, one of the part of automobile, is inspected by human eyes which caused mistakes and slow progress. To achieve the speed and accuracy the system was compensated by vision system which is inspecting automatically. This paper is automatic inspection of fuse and relay which is inserted in the junction box by checking the color and pattern of the cover. After checking the performance of the system by using the junction box, the result was 100 percent perception and open the possibility to inspect junction box fast and easy and accurate if it is applied to the industry.
