Question about Car Audio & Video
You would prefer to have no charge at all to test a capacitor. Those capacitors with a charge could be fatal if you touch them. Please be careful. So to check it make sure to discharge the capacitor. The take your analog/ multimeter and set it to 10 Ohms and with negative to negative and positive to positive touch the leads on the capacitor. The meter should go up to a small resistance and then drop back down to infinity. That is a functioning capacitor. If it goes to a low resistance and stays then it is a leaky capacitor. If it goes to '0' then it is a shorted capacitor. If you get no response at all the this is an open capacitor.
