MAINTENENCE--ELECTRICAL
In the European model, the center city light position
of the headlight switch turns on the small city light,
tail light and meter lights for driving in the city after
dark.
When the switch is turned to the on position,
the headlight comes on and city light stays on. High and
low beam can be selected only when the headlight
switch is in the on position.
There is also a passing and horn button (European
model).
This button is spring loaded and when the
button is pushed to pass, the high beam light (but not
the tail light) comes on as a passing signal to the driver
of the vehicle ahead. The passing button will light the
high beam light regardless of the headlight switch posi-
tion, and the button will spring back and turn the light
off as soon as it is released.
Checking the reserve lighting system
-Remove the headlight unit.
-Disconnect the headlight socket and connect the three
terminals of headlight bulb with corresponding leads
using three suitable insulated wires.
-Turn on the headlight and set the dimmer switch to
the low beam position.
-Disconnect the wire which is connected to the red/
yellow lead to simulate a bad low beam
filament.
At
this time the high beam should go on more dimly than
normal, and the white headlight failure indicator should
come on.
e<:onnect the red/yellow leads, and set the dimmer
switch to the high beam position.
-Disconnect the wire which is connected to the red/
black leads to simulate high beam failure. At this time
Dieck of Reserve Lighting System
the low beam should come on and the white indicator
light should light.
Headlight, dimmer switch inspection
Tables K16, K17, and K18 show the connections in
the headlight switch, and the connections in the dimmer
switch for both high and low beam.
-Remove the fuel tank, and disconnect the leads to the
headlight switch or the leads to the dimmer switch.
-Use an ohmmeter to see that only the connections
shown in the tables have continuity (zero ohms). If
the
sw~tch
has open or a short, it can be disassembled
for repair. The contact surfaces may be cleaned, but
no internal parts are available for replacement. If any
parts are not repairable, the switch must be replaced
as a unit.
