Hello everyone, can someone help identify this component. It is for a rather old, perhaps 20 years, automobile. It no longer has any documentation of any kind, but this component is on the display unit. What you see there is the only markings it has, nothing else.
If I had to wager a guess, I'd say it's a 2.2uF ceramic capacitor manufactured by muRata. (I think that's the muRata logo on there). It could also be an inductor of some kind, but doubtful. Do you think it's bad for some reason?
To me it looks like a murata resonnator. It looks like there is an IC on the left of your picture. If you have the reference of this IC and see that the 2 sides of this component are connected to 2 pins on the IC it will help to identify it.
Back in the 80's & 90's they made varistors in that package. Most commonly transient supressors. The flat leads were a common way of connecting to the substrate.
It does have the looks of a ceramic resonator, but they usually have freq on them as with a crystal. These were commonly used at low frequencies to drive flourescent displays.
I agree with identifying the surrounding components, a spec sheet on the IC it serves will tell the tale. Got an old IC Master?
