13.24. Check of functioning of the switch

Even the defective switch can sometimes "confuse" an electric current. In Mondeo, however, "in honour" various types of switches. Their check is better for carrying out by means of a control lamp. Naturally, needle contact on the lamp end should be for this purpose «sharp as a needle», instead of too stupid. If necessary replace defective switches only with original spare parts Ford.


    Get a corresponding electroassembly diagramme to the Mondeo. At first be engaged in wires being alive. For this purpose take a control lamp and pierce wire isolation by needle contacts. Check up, whether pressure is enclosed to the switch. For this purpose it is necessary to include ignition or illumination preliminary, as a rule. The switch is checked so: it is found out, whether "lets out" the switch the entrance pressure on an exit (target pressure).

The combined device

The combined device of yours Mondeo is the uniform block in which it is impossible to replace separately any element. In it indicators and control lamps of all systems of the car settle down. As, as practice has shown, lighting means "live" in modern salons long enough, in this chapter we not will stop in detail more on illumination devices. Salon Mondeo is offered in three various variants: Ambiente, Trend and Ghia.

Car equipment is substantially presented by work of indicators – also indicators, thus without any independent functioning therefore are visually various. To systems of indication and the alarm system the information is given by target signals of gauges – you consider it when wish to solve the reasons of occurrence of malfunctions in systems.

The electronic speedometer, for example, receives the signal from the gauge of speed of movement (VSS) which is in a transmission. Other systems which also require this signal, the engine management block, system ABS/ESP, system of regulation of speed, the onboard computer are, for example.

Attention – always check the interconnected systems on functioning

Always check the interconnected systems, it will fast lead you to the necessary purpose. All devices and control lamps receive the impulses not on wires, and through a payment with the put current-carrying paths. Depending on equipment and payment model happen various. Therefore at carrying out of repair work and acquisition of spare details pay to this attention.

Your dealer Ford distinguishes at once a necessary payment on a code designation in your engineering specifications or the passport on the car. However at elimination of malfunctions new payments seldom are required: more often defective there are only lamps, or the socket has suffered from weakness of contact. Therefore without dismantle of the combined device, certainly, here not to manage.
