Can't identify a capacitor

Hi! I'm new to the forum, and I'm experience a problem with the identification of a capacitor from a chinese OBDII ELM327 Bluetooth reader, after I've plugged it the second time on the car the main resistor cap just burned up, I can't find any identifications on it, but is a brown multilayer ceramic capacitor that connects to the car 12V direct current pin from the one that gone bad I've try to take a measure and it gave me 1.424uF, don't know if the value makes sense for the type of circuit but the nearest that I could find was the 1.5uF 1206 but it works at 10V and the MLCC 1.5uF 2225 that works at 25V
What would be your best guess for this one? since I can't find any schematics for it.

Thanks in advance for any help!

If you cannot id the capacitor try 10μF 25V 1206 tantalum capacitor.
Put the end with the stripe towards the 12V connection.
