    well for starters you need to remove the ground and remove the fuse off the distributation it should be 5-10 mins before you can do any contact (think)

    i thought it was longer. Im pretty sure the capacitor "should" be discharged before you start messin with it. But i could be wrong.

    Remove the fuse on the power line, and let it sit for a little while if u can

    take the fuse out before you go to sleep. then when you wake up it should be good to go. but just continue unhooking it as if it were hot

    You are supposed to discharge a CAP before disconnecting it, but I am too impatient to do so, I just disconnect when I want to.

    I agree with 94' Bad...discharging it before just pulling it out will continue it's shelf life and performance in "storing some battery juice".

    Back in my day we used to disconnect it and then just discharge it by using a 12v test light...
