6.1.2. Gymnastics system

If the control lamp of gymnastics of the accumulator does not burn at ignition inclusion, check up connection of wires to the generator and integrity of a control lamp.

If the lamp still does not burn, check up an electric chain from the generator to a lamp.

If all electric chains are serviceable, means, the generator is faulty and it should be replaced or repaired.

If the control lamp of gymnastics of the accumulator burns at engine work, stop the engine and check up a condition and a tension приводного a generator belt, and also connection of wires to the generator.

Check of a regulator of pressure

1. Connect the voltmeter to poles of the accumulator and start the engine.
2. Increase turns of the engine before stabilisation of indications of the voltmeter which should show from 12 to 13, but no more than 14 volt.
3. Include a maximum quantity of electric consumers (a headlight, a heater of back glass, the heater fan). Thus the pressure developed by the generator with a regulator of pressure, should be in limits from 13 to 14 volt.
4. If pressure does not correspond to demanded sizes, the worn out brushes of the generator, weak springs of brushes, a faulty regulator of pressure, the faulty diode, winding breakage статора or defective contact rings of a rotor can be a cause of defect.
