13.7. Safety locks


Electric chains of the car are protected by a set of safety locks, automatic switches and burned-through crossing points. Blocks of safety locks are located under the dashboard, on left or on right (on some models) a wall, and also, in an impellent compartment near the accumulator.

Each of safety locks protects the chain and on the panel of a safety lock there is a designation of a chain protected by this safety lock.

In the block of safety locks three types of tiny safety locks are used. With contacts in the form of plates it is possible to remove and establish these compact safety locks fingers. If any of elements of electric equipment ceases to work, always, first of all, check a safety lock. It is easy to define fused safety lock, having looked at a connecting delay via the transparent plastic case. Examine the safety lock case on existence of damages. If it is necessary to check, whether fused a type A safety lock, its contact plates act from the safety lock case.

At replacement of the fused safety lock always use a new safety lock of the same capacity, as old. Safety locks of various capacity are physically interchangeable, however it is necessary to use safety locks only the demanded capacity. Replacement of a safety lock by a safety lock of bigger or smaller capacity is not recommended. Various electric chains need various protection. The capacity of a safety lock is specified on the safety lock. If the new safety lock fuses at once, it is necessary to find the reason of it before to establish a new safety lock. The most probable cause of a peregoraniye of a safety lock is short circuit in a chain, caused by the torn or worn-out wire.
