Take your main power/ground leads,put them on the capacitors terminals,then take how ever many feet of wire needed to go to your amp,put the ground on ground and power on power.

The Ice Machine is pulling 40 - 50+ Amps on compressor startup, after 5 - 10 secs it trips the breaker. WHat could this be and is it easily corrected.

sounds like you need to change compacitor on compressor or your compressor needs replaced i would change compacitor first and if not helping then change compressor even if you buy compacitor and it doesnt help you still need to have a new one for the new compressor

I have a 98 mustang with the mach 460 system in it. I am trying to add a subwoofer and amp to the car and i can not find the speaker wire to splice into so that i can get bass out of my memphis audio...

Okay you will not find a wire to splice into. Assuming that you have an aftermarket Head unit, your gonna need to hook those rca cables in the back of the head unit (the red and white female inlets) and run those to the amplifier, afterwhich can you run at least 6 to 4 guage wire (available at walmart) from the amp to the subwoofer. Now make sure you buy a power compacitor to handle the extra juice needed to run that amp, which is alot cheeper than buying an extra battery and running that off your alternator (not a good idea by the way).

No power after i unhooked the wire from amp, left wire uncovered at ends for couple days tried hooking them back up and no power now. is amp blown

if you unhooked the wire from the amp while the amp was on, you may have possibly blown a fuse, or mayb a transistor or compacitor inside the amp! easy fix, just find new transistors and compacitors and soilder them on after removing old ones!

Should the wires coming from the run compacitor have power

The run capacitor is not a mechanical device, so the clicking that you are hearing is not actually coming from the capacitor. If you the wires going to the capacitor, (isolate the capacitor), you can check the microfarad rating of the capacitor to ensure it is still good using a multimeter. Hope this helps.

Smoking Amp/Fuse Blowing

Sounds like you may have a shorted switching Transistor in the switch mode power supply causing a short to ground. If you are technical enough. Remove power remove cover and do a continuity test on the transistors on the heatsink. non of them should read zero resistance between the three legs. in all connection configuration you use to hook up your meter. If one or Two or even all of them do you must replace with proper part.
