Default Re: capacitor?

Its the red wire with a female plug right...? I'm not sure what the capacitor is for, my 96,97 have the wire but no cap. My dads 95 has the cap. I have no idea what it is for. But I can tell you this, it is a crank hot and a key hot. If you ever need power for something, plug it in! Can the cap.

Actually come to think about it, I thought I read once that it is a noise capacitor, to reduce whin from the wires.....? if that makes any sense....IDK!?
