13.3. Check of level of electrolit in the accumulator

From factory you Mondeo leaves more often with not demanding servicing svintsovo-kaltsievym the accumulator (Са) onboard. Its service life strongly depends on service conditions: any start-up of the cold engine, primary driving on short distances with a considerable quantity of stops before a traffic light, and also movement in a mode «Stop-and-go», any additional consumer (the conditioner, warmed forward and back glass, salon ventilation, light of headlights, etc.) Regular flights to long distances influence the electric accumulator more strongly, than. But all the same from two till three years new accumulators can hold on. If you have to equip the Mondeo with the new accumulator Ford orders Sa-accumulator use. If all of you таки have dared at cheaper spare accumulator with served elements from time to time should check accumulator electrolit. The electrolit is sulfuric acid which is diluted by the distilled water.

Heats of environment or defective regulator of pressure deduce this mix from an equilibrium state – water evaporates. During long standing automatically there is an accumulator self-discharge. It also can lead to "a water lack», as well as the deep category external токопотребителя (for example, refrigerating knot in прикуривателе). Add necessary volume only the distilled water – tap water, as well as boiled, contains current-carrying salts and other mineral substances which have on the accumulator negative an effect. In «convenient for service» accumulators "evaporated" water is condensed in a pipeline labyrinth over cells and remains in the accumulator.


  1. Electrolit level in the case should reach at least a label «MIN» (plates should be well drowned).
  2. It is possible to add small doses of acid. For this purpose unscrew or unbend запорную a stopper from above accumulator covers.
  3. Missing volume of the charged accumulator finish to the top stroke (about 15 mm over plates) at the expense of the distilled water.
  4. Strongly discharged accumulator add until plates will not be covered – level of acid during gymnastics process raises. If necessary add missing volume to a label «MAX».
  5. Never overflow the accumulator – for acid will follow from запорной a stopper or lateral ventilating apertures. It will lead to "blossoming" corrosion and formation of white crystals of acid both on an accumulator surface, and near to its site. By means of a brass brush cautiously remove crystals and then смойте this "dirt" a water considerable quantity. Thus preliminary do not forget to disconnect the plug 31 (minus a pole) the accumulator.
