Well my lights started dimming when the volume got medium to high lol. So i decided to install a 3.5 farad(bit much but got a great deal) but i can't get the damn thing on. Once in a while it will blink but thats it. Wiring from the battery to the cap to the amp the sound system still turns on with out a hitch sounds the same no buzzing; but no cap still. I have an Alpine M500, is it possible that the cap is just to big for the amp to that much power?(BTW i don't think so just was recommended to me).

Any thoughts ideas would be much appreciated! The cap was charged through a resistor not a direct connect to the battery.

Thanks

are you sure its not turning on? cuz i bought a 20$on sale one from Frys electronics down here in GA.and went to bestbuy and had my buddy charge it for me.but just the LED screen didnt work.
mayb the LED display is busted like mine was?

or also the lines between the cap and amp is to long along with the ground?

I had this problem with mine. It kept on blinking and wouldnt stay on. The negative part of the cap might be loose and need to be tightened. Unhook the cap from the amp. I had to screw the bolt to that negative side which caused the base to tighten. Hook everything back up and it works fine now.
