How To Test A Automobile Ignition Condenser?

Answer

Most new vehicles do not have an engine capacitor. People who are restoring older model vehicles will however want to know how to test an automobile ignition condenser. In order to perform the test you will need a digital multimeter and a capacitor checker with test leads. Before you begin testing, you should inspect the condenser. If it is bulging then it needs to be replaced. If not then you need to locate the polarity of the capacitor. Now you will need to perform your tests with the multimeter by connecting to the positive and negative connections.

I would honestly take it to an auto parts store and have it tested there to be honest with you. However if you are capable of reading ohms on a tester, you can hook it to the condenser and see if it reads 200 ohms. If it doesn't it is shot anyhow. They do go out often which is why I said to take it in and have it tested. Just saves a few minutes of time.
