I am not an electrician and I need some help with choosing a diode. I am working on a car wiring system and I need a diode that will stop "leaking" voltage. The diode will need to resist 18volts (no load) and pass (in the working direction) up to 16 volts and 16 Amps.
Is this possible and if so what type and size of diode do I need ?
Please email me at email@example.com if you can shed any light on the subject.
