13.27. Protection against overloads – safety locks in salon and a motor compartment

In yours Mondeo numerous safety locks protect onboard to the electrician from repressure. Their protective function is shown at theoretical maximum loading of a separate electric chain. Safety locks interrupt current giving as soon as, for example, short circuit (the defective consumer, the damaged wire) нескоординированно takes away onboard pressure on weight. Thereby they prevent occurrence of other defects (for example, wire ignition) in your car. Mondeo has the flat electric safety locks, which fusible wire – in case of an overload – overheats. For a separate safety lock, however, overload "fact" can come even then when completely loaded electric chain in addition "is still embellished" by other consumers (HiFi-systems, powerful target amplifiers or inadmissible powerful lamps). Besides, banal automobile vacuum cleaners and refrigerating cases which it is simple подпитываются a current from a plug receptacle прикуривателя, can "fuse" a safety lock at times. Therefore allocate in Mondeo in case of need for additional consumers a separate electric chain – naturally, with the safety lock. To exclude all possible variants, address better to the autoelectrician at factory which can prompt you the necessary section of a wire (minute of 15 mm 2) and a sufficient way of protection of an electric chain.

Are distributed on different electric chains – onboard safety locks

The control system of the engine and the majority of powerful units are protected separately. That you Mondeo did not remain completely without a current in the presence of electric failure or defect, engineers Ford have distributed the onboard consumers on several electric chains. Not main auxiliary consumers unite in different groups and also "pass" accordingly through a safety lock. Not so affairs in electric chains between a starter, the storage battery, the generator and the ignition lock-switch are: here the accumulator total power constantly takes place. Therefore extra care at the reference with these electric chains: in the beginning ALWAYS disconnect the accumulator! Otherwise capital damages and ignition of wires and even car ignition will be programmed.


Safety locks Mondeo

In a box of safety locks Mondeo flat safety locks (minisafety locks) settle down, whose transparent «plastic bodies» fix two connected fusible wire of the flat tip, or so-called А1-предохранители. The fused safety lock is distinguished on the broken off fusible wire (it is specified by an arrow). Be frequent can also backs of plastic filling are broken or melted off.

Recognition on colour – quantity of Amperes

For the best differentiation of the maximum loading safety locks, in addition to an inscription on them, are marked with colour. To minisafety locks in Mondeo correspond:

    Grey (2) Violet (3) Pink (4) Beige (5) Brown (7,5 And Red (10) Dark blue (15) ў Yellow (20) Transparent (24) Green (30)

    It is compactly inserted: a minisafety lock.

In addition protect in Mondeo so-called А1-предохранители "powerful" electric chains. They resist:

    Dark blue (20) Pink (30) Green (40 And Red (50) Yellow (60) Brown (70) Black (80)

    Suffer high a current strength: А1-предохранители.
