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.

It is a capacitor. Please read up on how capacitors work and it will explain itself.

The capacitor is holding a charge, just like it was designed to do.

How am I going to connect it to my car,Im wondering why it doesnt have a remote terminal like what the other capacitor brand had.

it's like a battery. you run it in parallel (run power from battery + to capacitor + then from capacitor + to ampplifier +) battery, capacitor, and amp each has its own ground (black or -). you don't need a remote wire. it only stores electricity until the amplifier needs extra juice (so your headlights won't dim).

How to wire a 10 farad power acoustik capaciter

With BIG wires from battery to cap and then to your amp.

Good idea to put fuse or fusible link between bat + and the cap. Protects against fires.

If one wanted to be safe from starter motor transients I would gate the + power lead with a power relay between the battery and the cap. This relay should close when you are in run or accessory position of your key switch. I recommend this as there are so MANY dead car audio amps. Just search for them on here! A bunch of them MIGHT be caused by inductive transients during starter motor shutdown. Note the inductance is in the grounding wire from teh battery to the engine/chassis.

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.

Cant figure out how to wire a power acoustik 5 farad power cap.

Use to independent grounds always better that way. Better full field for power and less distortion. I like to use 4 guage or lower like 0 guage for high powered systems. Good luck, thanks for using FIX YA
