3.10.1. Check of electric equipment

1. Check whether the generator drive belt is torn off. If there was a break, replace a belt and adjust its tension (see. "Replacement of a belt of the drive of the generator").
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").
3. If the belt is tense normally, check whether F1 safety lock in the assembly block of safety locks and the relay fused. The arrangement of safety locks and their face values are specified in the present manual (see. "Malfunctions of electric equipment"), in the repair manual of the car, the electric circuit, on the case of the assembly block and on safety locks. 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.
4. If the lamp of the category of the rechargeable battery did not go out, check the wires connected to the plus plug of the rechargeable battery …
5. … to a starter …
6. … and to the generator. Wires can be torn off, broken off in isolation or have the oxidized or unreliable contacts. Eliminate malfunction and launch the engine. If there was charging current, it is possible to continue the movement.
If after the taken measures the lamp of charging continues to burn at the working engine, then the possible cause of defect is covered in the generator. The reasons can be a little, and 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.

Good advice
To reduce consumption of current at the movement of the car with the faulty generator, whenever possible switch-off the radio receiver, excess devices of lighting, the heater fan, a glass heater, etc.

Check on the car.
It will be required to you: screw-drivers with a flat and crosswise edge, a key "on 12" (two), the voltmeter of a direct current, the megohm meter.
1. Take away a rubber cover and connect a wire "+" to the generator In + plug, and a wire "-" to the generator case.
2. Launch the engine and include car headlights.
3. In 15 min. operation of the engine on average turns measure tension, it has to be within 14,4–15,1 Century. If the nedozaryadka or a recharge (tension does not keep within the set limits) is observed, replace tension regulator.
