I had a turn signal capacitor in my L81 for a long time, and then I pulled it for some reason, and misplaced it.

Just recently, I bought one in e-bay, and I just installed it, but for the life of me, I can't tell what it is doing differently. ;shrug;help

It is supposed to reduce the radio noise from the contact in the flasher opening up when it flashes

So it prevents the flashing noise from being heard over the radio. Gotcha! I'll check it with the radio on. Thanks!
