    Can someone tell me if a 47uf 10v capacitor is sufficient for the sp12 programmer? I already installed the capacitor but haven't used the programmer. I also have a 47uf 100v. I was told higher voltage is ok. Should I change the capacitor?

    sorry to hijack the topic

    but I can't seem to figure out which side of my capacitor is negative and which side is positive

    it is this capacitor: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.js...oductId=2102483

    would the negative be the side of the dip thing (opposite of a bump) or the side that the arrow is pointing to.

    Thanks

    You should really get to know the most basic parts in a circuit, it isn't that much info and it will help you later on.

    The arrow points to the negative (-) end.

    that's what I thought....

    but before I possibly kill the capacitor I wanted to double check
    and a website said sometimes the arrow points to negative and sometimes to positive....big help
    but I got my answer from some other people.

    Thanks

    I thought the - in the arrow was a 0 that's why I got confused [​IMG]
