Re: 66 radio capacitors how do I check them?
Jim, does your AM reception crackle with the engine running or just with the XM transmitter? You can try adding a 3MF capacitor from the feed for the cig lighter to ground to see if you get some improvement. Some of these transmitters are really sensitive to ignition noise. Is the connection from your transmitter to the radio wired with shielded wire? Post the model number of your transmitter, maybe we can glean some info about proper grounding techniques for it.
