GENERAL INFORMATION

Accumulator

The accumulator is unattended.

Generator

The generator does not demand service, except periodic check of a tension of a maple belt of the drive.

In case of accumulator charging on the car from the additional power supply it is necessary to disconnect wires of the electric equipment of the car from its plugs. Thus, the generator rectifier very sensitive to high voltage or wrong connection of a source of current is protected from damage.


Prevention

It is not necessary to switch-off the accumulator in the course of operation of the engine. It is impossible to use the rectifier of big power to start of the engine also.


Safety locks

The block of safety locks is located on the left side of a motor compartment (in a back part). Closes its casing from transparent artificial material on which the electric chains protected by these safety locks are designated. The safety locks protecting devices of additional equipment are located on the corresponding wires of food.

In case of burn-out of a safety lock it should be replaced. If through short time the new safety lock fuses too, then it demonstrates damage of this contour. Follows, as soon as possible to find the reason of damage and to eliminate it. It is recommended to carry a spare set of safety locks in the car.
