The car is equipped with a 12-voltny onboard power supply system with grounding on a negative pole. Supply of electricity to lighting devices and other consumers is carried out from the storage battery of the lead-acid type which additional charge is made from the generator of an alternating current.
The description of procedures of repair and service of the electric components which are established on the car and not having the direct connection to operation of the engine is provided in the present chapter, - information on service of such units as the storage battery, components of system of ignition, the generator and a starter is given in the Head of System of electric equipment of the engine, devoted to systems of electric equipment of the engine.
Before starting service of components of onboard electric equipment, in order to avoid receiving electric shock, or ignition as a result of short circuit, it is necessary to disconnect a negative wire from the battery. Regularly check a condition of plaits of electroconducting and reliability of their fastening in intermediate clamps, collars and bindings. Watch, that isolation of wires was not wiped about the components located in the neighbourhood.
Models of cars considered in the real Management can be equipped with system of additional safety (SRS). Before starting performance of any works near modules of safety cushions, a steering column or the dashboard, disconnect SRS in order to avoid receiving traumas as a result of casual operation of a gas generator, - electroconducting of a chain of SRS is easy for distinguishing on yellow color of isolation!
