3.11.1. Check of electric equipment
1. Check whether the generator drive belt is torn off. If there was a break, replace a belt (see. "Replacement of a belt of the drive of the generator and compressor of the conditioner") also adjust its tension (see. "Check of a tension of a belt of the drive of the generator and compressor of the conditioner").
2. If the belt is whole, check and if necessary adjust its tension (see. "Check of a tension of a belt of the drive of the generator and compressor of the conditioner").
3. If after a belt tension the alarm lamp all the same burns, check the wires connected to the plus plug of the rechargeable battery...
4.... to a starter...
5.... and to the generator. Wires can be torn off, broken off in isolation or with the oxidized or unreliable contacts. Eliminate malfunction and launch the engine. If there was charging current, it is possible to continue the movement.
6. If the belt is tense normally, check whether the safety lock fused (it is shown by an arrow) in the assembly block of safety locks and the relay installed in podkapotny space. If the safety lock fused, replace it, launch the engine and check whether the lamp of the category of the rechargeable battery went out. If the lamp went out, it is possible to continue the movement.
Do not establish the safety locks calculated on bigger rated current. It can lead to damage of electric equipment and even to the fire.
If after the taken measures the lamp of the category continues to burn at the working engine, then the possible cause of defect is covered in the generator. The reasons can be a little, it is better to eliminate them in the conditions of car service or a garage, and you need to hope that there will be enough energy stock in the rechargeable battery that to reach them.
To reduce consumption of current at the movement of the car with the faulty generator, whenever possible switch-off the radio tape recorder, excess devices of lighting, the heater fan, heating of back glass, etc.
