HEY GUY..FIRST THING....GOOD JOB IN GETTING A BIG CAP :) ...SECOND I HAVE WIRED THESE FOR YEARS..ITS REALLY VERY EASY.......THE OBJECTIVE IS TO PUT THIS IN LINE WITH YOUR AMP....SO WITHIN ABOUT A FOOT AND A HALF OF YOUR AMP..YOU WANT TO 1.. CUT YOUR POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE WIRES RUNNING THE POWER TO YOUR AMP...2. YOU WILL THEN CUT THE INSULATION OFF AROUND THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE WIRES ON BOTH ENDS OF THE WIRES YOU HAVE JUST CUT(YOU WILL END UP HAVING THE 2 POS AND 2 NEG. WIRES WITH THE INSULATION PEELED OFF)... 3... YOU WILL THEN JUST HAVE THE 2 WIRES (WITH THE INSULATION GONE OFF OF THEM) OUT OF THE AMP..AND THE OTHER 2 STRIPPED OFF RUNNING TO THE CAR BATTERY (POS) AND THE (NEG) TO THE CAR FRAME OR NEG BATTERY POST... 4.. YOU WILL THEN JUST MATCH UP THE POSITIVE FROM THE AMP INTO THE POSITIVE ON THE CAP...AND THE POSITIVE GOING BACK TO THE BATTERY OF YOUR CAR TO THE POSITIVE ON THE CAPACITOR...DO THE SAME THING WITH ALL OF THE NEGATIVES.......
SUMMARY.... CUT THE NEG. AND POSITIVE WIRES.WITHIN 1.5 FT FROM THE AMP.... PEEL INSULATION ON WIRES BACK ABOUT .5" ON ALL 4 WIRES.... PUT ALL THE POSITIVES TOGETHER AND ALL THE NEGATIVES TOGETHER...AND YOU CANT GO WRONG....THANK YOU
Good Luck

Capacitor on induction blower


How many uf is indicated on the capacitor.It will show a number ie 10uf. If the rating on the capacitor is more than 5uf or less than 3 uf then the capacitor is failing. 10% variance is acceptable. Most electrical wholesalers sell capacitors and cost is around $20.00 or so.

Cap is hooked up wrong, should shut off after a certain amount of time and reactivate with the ignition hot wire. If it's draining your battery continuously then you should look at the wiring.
