Nice pictures!!! Remove the black plastic protective cover by prying it off. it is there to prevent an accidental short, but I'm sure you will be careful when prying it off, and it will likely be discharged. This will allow you to get a better look at the top for any bulging or piercing.I just got out of garage..... I started it up pulled the code only the p1562.... I had my meter on it the entire time, with a little throttle voltage was up around 14.7 consistently. I pulled the capacitor out and gave it a smell and it wasn't that bad, but when I smell the plastic that the capacitor sits in, that stinks like burnt. I checked the inspection shield and it looks pierced to me... The manual says if it's pierced then to replace it. I will post a pic of it and hope someone chimes in... Thanks guys have a good night.

The P1562 code means either the stator is not producing enough voltage, or there is a component in the 60 Vdc System that is shorted and draining the the power from the stator. I will add the Power Distribution Chart for the ETEC, but the components on the 60 Vdc System are the injectors, ignition coils, fuel pump, oil pump and the capacitor.
With the Capacitor removed from the sled - which it currently is - measure the voltage output while cranking over the engine. The positive test leas needs to be secured to the positive terminal that is normally connected to the capacitor, but make sure it cannot inadvertently touch the chassis and short to ground as this will cause a short in the ECM. The negative probe goes to the chassis/frame.
The same test is done by disconnecting each component on the 60 Vdc System. You can do this with or without the capacitor, but the voltage should be higher with a good capacitor.
