I just bought a van. should I put in one of those little boxes with the green flashing led light? The ones they say at the dealer stop the rust?

I am not sure those things work, but you need an Anode (maybe inside the box ) you need a Cathode ( metal of car ) you need Electrolyte ( maybe water, snow ) and a Metallic couple ( screws mounting the box ) so I guess it could work but I would think only in the area of the box but I am NOT an expert on those. I do know Cathodic protection, impressed or Galvanic has been around for a really long time and if you could keep a car from rusting by putting a Anode on them everyone would have one I would think

I handle underground corrosion control on pipe lines and tanks

Hello Traskman.
If you are indeed in the electrical trade, let me welcome you to our forum.
However, this is a professional site and like new hires, we will know in no time flat, if you are indeed in our trade. We spot impostors on the job before lunch. So be forewarned.
Thanks for coming aboard.

Default Impostor ?

to all, as stated in my first post I am a certified Corrosion Technician and this would NACE certified (National Association of Corrosion Engineers ) I do some electrical like wire up Rectifiers to A/C limited to 120/240v and the D/C output sides (Anode, Cathodes )now outside of work I do all of my own home electrical type of work myself.
now maybe I missed something and maybe what I do as not part of the ''Electrical Trade'' than you can delete me from your form and I will look elsewhere for knowledge
and by no means do I want to be an ''Imposter''

thank you

Welcome to ET. What Mr Valdes means is that many have
ignored the qualifier about the differences between the
intent of this forum and the intent of a DIY forum .

What I would say is , your expertise may not jive with
the expertise of commercial industrial , residential
electricians trades , but hey your here , so the floor is
yours.

Pick a category to post under and begin a topic of what's
on your mind.
