MAINTENENCE--ELECTRICAL
Horn circuit check
-Check that battery voltage is normal.
-Set the multimeter to the 20Y DC range, and connect
the meter to the leads that were disconnected from the
horn
.
The + meter lead goes to the brown lead
,
and
the
-
meter lead goes to the
black/
wh ite lead.
-With the ignition switch on, press the horn button.
The meter should registor
battery
voltage
.
I f it does
not, the fuse
,
ignition switch
,
main switch, horn
button
,
or wiring is at fault.
A. Horn Leads
-If the meter does show batte
ry
voltage, indicating that
the horntrouble lies within the horn
itself,
and adjust-
ment fails to correct the trouble, replace the horn
.

position such thlt the horn would probably have to
be
replectd.
A. Armature Mounting Nut
Horn inspection
-Disconnect the leads to the horn
,
and connect a multi
-
meter set to the x 1
n
range to the horn terminals to
check for continuity (close to zero ohms)
.
If the
reading is several ohms or if there is no reading at all,
replace the horn
.
A. Check the resistance across the horn terminals.
FUEL GAUGE,
WATER TEMPERATURE GAUGE
Both the fuel and water temperature gauges are
electricall
y
operated
.
As shown in the diagram, two
gauges are powered by the battery through the 7-volt
voltage regulator.
Each gauge is of the bimetal type,
and the indicator needle swings according to the amount
of current flowing through the gauge. The amount of
current is controlled by the fuel level sender and the
wate
r
temperature sender.

-Disconnect the 2-pin connector to the
sender,
and turn
on the ignition switch
.
At this time the g<luge should
read
"E".
-Short-circuit together the black/yellow and
white/
yellow leads on the gauge side of the 2-pin
connector.
At this time the gauge should read
