Hi
--
Lo
Reserve lighting wiring inspection
ePuli
off the right side cover,
remove
the IC igniter and
regulator/rectifier
mounting bolts (2), and then pull
out the 6-pin connector of
the
reserve
lighting
device.
A.
Ie
Igniter
NOTE:
The
reserve lighting
device is mounted
beneath
the
battery
tray.
eTurn
on
the
main
switch
and
ignition
switch
to
"ON"
position.
-Check the
voltage of each lead through the
6-pin
con-
nector
by
referring to the following
procedure.
NOTE
:
Set
a voltmeter to
20V
DC range, and
always
ground
the
(-)
probe of the voltmeter.
Trouble
(a): When one
filament is
burned out,
the other
is
not
turned
on.
oExamine
the
voltage
of blue/orange lead by apply-
ing the (+)
probe
of voltmeter
to the lead. When
the
meter
reading
is about 12 V, both
filaments
of
the
headlight are burned out or the black/yellow
lead is
broken
.
When
the
meter
reading is less
than about
12
V,
advance
to the
next
step.
A.
~pin
Connector
oExamine
the voltage of the blue lead. If the meter
reading is about 12 V, the reserve lighting device is
defective. When the reading is 0 V, the main switch,
ignition switch or wiring harness is broken.
Trouble (b): Both filaments for upper beam and lower
beam are turned on at the same time.
oExamine the voltage of the blue/orange lead. When
the meter reading is about 12 V, the reserve lighting
device is defective. When the reading is 0 V, the
dimmer switch is defective.
Trouble (c): The high beam is not dimmed when the
low beam burns out and the high one is
turned on automatically.
oExamine
the voltage of the red/black lead. If the
meter reading is about 12 V, the reserve lighting
device is defective. If the reading is 0 V, the wiring
harness is broken.
Trouble (d): The failure indicator light
is
not turned on
when the headlight filament burns out
oExamine
the voltage of the light green/red lead.
When the meter reading is about 12 V, the indicator
light burns out or is not grounded. When the read-
ing is 0 V, the reserve lighting device is defective.
TURN SIGNAL CIRCUIT AND AUTOMATIC
CANCELLING SYSTEM
Turn Signal Circuit
A wiring diagram of the turn signal circuit is shown
in
Fig.
K59.
When the ignition switch is on and the
turn signal switch is turned to
"R"
or
"L",
a ground is
provided for the circuit so current can
flow.
Current
to the right or left turn signals flows through the closed
contacts and through the resistance wire inside the turn
signal relay, and the turn signals go on. The resistance
wire quickly heats up, expands, and allows a spring to
pull the contacts open. When the contacts have opened,
the circuit is broken, the turn signals go off, and the
resistance wire cools and contacts, closing the contacts
so that the cycle can begin again. The indicator light
for the turn signals indicates that
they
are working
properly.
