Where are the two capacitors in the electrical system attached?

Asked by Mar 09, 2014 at 04:00 AM about the 1978 Chevrolet Nova

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

One is on the fuse box, somewhere,
the other is for the a/c or blower, I
believe. No diagrams indicate their
location or purpose.

Their purpose was noise suppression, there would be one on the heater blower circuit it is usuall attached to the blower motor housing, the other will be in the charging circuit usuall right by the regulator. If you are missing these and can't find any OEM's you can use the new supressors for a automotive stereo system.

I should say that your car will operate normally without them but you might have some radio noise without them.
