13.12. Check of a regulator of pressure


    Connect a multimeter between plugs «» (a red wire) the generator and weight. Let the engine will work within two minutes on high turns from 3000 to 4000 rpm (the diesel engine – 1800–2500 rpm) that the generator has heated up to working temperature (nearby 80 °С). Include lay fires, a radio receiver or the fan of fresh air. It corresponds токовой to loading from 3 to 7 Amperes. Regulating pressure should be thus between 13,5 and 14,8 Volt. If you measure strong pressure defective and it it is necessary to replace a regulator. If a low voltage, that, according to practice, sliding electrographite contacts of the generator are worn out. In this case it is necessary to dismantle the generator and to repair in a workshop.


It will help you to work more effectively

If you go with the defective generator.

If the generator or a regulator "have gone on strike", it is necessary to move taking into account certain restrictions for the electrical supply is incurred by the storage battery further. Depending on degree of gymnastics and capacity of its energy approximately enough at five o'clock, it is natural, in the event that all superfluous consumers will be disconnected.

    Disconnect a multicontact socket from the generator. The accumulator will not be discharged any more from the defective generator or a pressure regulator. Needlessly do not interrupt movement – at each start-up a lot of current is required to a starter especially. At possibility drive the car is better. Disconnect heating of back glass, the conditioner and a radio receiver. Include a screen wiper together with system of washing of glasses only for short time. To a night-time move whenever possible only with the included passing light.
