    This is on a 20 year old automotive circuit board I would like to try to fix. Can anyone identify the part or a functionally equivalent replacement?

    Markings are:
    33+
    10P
    [m]

    Any help would be appreciated.

    That's a 33 uF tantalum capacitor.

    Thanks for the replies. Since both the 33 and 10 were common numbers I wasn't sure which was for μF and which for Volts. Thanks for clearing that up. You can probably tell by that that I am a novice.

    Since neither of you mentioned the tolerance indicator 'P' can I assume that that value is less relevant when it comes to finding a replacement? In my brief online searches so far I haven't found anything with the same tolerance ratings. P = +100% ,-0%

    Cheers,
    John

    Hello,

    Any capacitor of 33 μF with a voltage higher or equal to 10 Volts will work.
    (do mind the + sign, placing it the wrong way around can blow it).

    Greetings,
    Bertus
