Capaciter

i Just installed a stinger capaciter and i noticed that after a few minutes of watching the display on low bass the indicator shuts off? is that normal? and with high bass is it okay to see the numbers fluctuating from 12-14v?

yes it is normal for the voltage to fluctuate it is also normal for the display to turn off after a certain amount of time. Don't worry your cap is functioning normally

if voltage stay constant for 15 econds (for most caps) the dsiplay shuts off. The display is a very useless feature and has nothing to do with the operation of the capactor. It's just bells and whistles.
