Safety locks – the general information
Various combinations of safety locks, breakers of a chain and fusible inserts are applied to protection of electric contours of electric equipment of the car. Two assembly blocks (three on the models equipped with ABS) are located one – under an instrument guard in the left part of the dashboard, the second – in the right part of a motive compartment of the car (see illustrations below).
Each separate safety lock is used for protection of any concrete electric contour. The identification table of safety locks is usually glued to a cover of the assembly block, from its internal party.
In the assembly block the safety locks of a compact design equipped with bayonet contacts, and which if necessary are easily taken from the nests in the block by fingers are used. At refusal any of consumers of the electric power first of all it is always necessary to check a condition of the corresponding safety lock. The case of a safety lock is made of transparent plastic through which it is easy to define a condition of a working crossing point (see an illustration below).
If the new safety lock at once after installation also fails, it does not make sense to make its further replacement, – before it is necessary to reveal and eliminate the overload reason in a chain. In most cases that appears the short circuit of an electrical wiring caused by damage of its isolation.
On all models of the cars considered in the Present Manual the main safety lock which is usually calculated on nominal current in 80 or in 100 amperes is provided. The safety lock provides the general protection of all contours connected to the battery and is beaten out at emergence of an overload of any of them, preventing thereby failure of the main braid of an electrical wiring. The main safety lock consists of a lamellar metal crossing point which easily melts at emergence of electric overloads. Before starting replacement of the main safety lock without fail switch-off the battery. A replaceable main safety lock it is always possible to get in firm service center of the company manufacturer of the car.
The main safety lock is in the assembly block located in a motive compartment of the car, externally a little than differs from other safety locks and changes in the similar way. Remember that the failed main safety lock has to be replaced with the replaceable calculated on the same current.
