Check of a condition of an electric equipment


1. Make sure of serviceability of functioning of all external lighting and alarm devices, including a horn. In case of revealing of refusals check up a condition of corresponding electric chains (corresponding sections in the Head the Onboard electric equipment see).

2. Make visual check of accessible electroconducting, its contact connections and intermediate clamps.

To check up serviceability of functioning of stoplights and indexes of turns alone, adjust the car closely to a wall of garage and be guided on reflected lights.

3. Refusal of one of stoplights, indexes of turns or head headlights appears is connected with blowingм a corresponding lamp more often. The detailed information on replacement of lamps of lighting devices is stated in the Head the Onboard electric equipment. Single failure of both stoplights, most likely, will be explained by refusal of the foot brake of the gauge-switch built in a pedal (address to the Head Brake system).

4. At refusal more one of indexes of turns / head headlights it is necessary to check up a condition of corresponding safety locks, and also electroconductings of chains protected by them (address to the Head the Onboard electric equipment). The basic part of safety locks is collected in the assembly block established on the right under the panel of devices of the car. The assembly block is equipped by a demountable cover.

5. By means of the special adaptation made of plastic and fixed on a cover of the assembly block, take a suspected safety lock from the nest and attentively study its condition. It is necessary to replace the beaten out safety lock corresponding to it on a current strength. We will notice that simple replacement of a safety lock no means always it appears enough for situation correction, - it is necessary to try to reveal and eliminate the reason of an overload of a chain (address to the Head the Onboard electric equipment).
