15-2 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Precautions
There are a number of important precaut
ions
that are
musts when
servicing electrical
systems.
Learn and
observe all the rules below.
o
Do not reverse the battery lead
connections.
This will
burn out the diodes in the electrical parts.
OAlways check battery condition before condemning
other parts of an electrical
system.
A fully charged
battery is a must for
conducting
accurate
electrical
system tests.
OThe electrical parts should never be struck sharply
,
as
with a
hammer,
or allowed to fall on a hard surface
.
Such a shock to the parts can damage
them.
OTo prevent damage to
electrical
parts, do not
disconnect
the battery leads or any
other
electrical connections
when the ignition switch is on, or while the engine is
running.
o
Because of the large amount of current, never keep the
starter sw
itch
pushed when the starter motor will not
turn
over,
or the current may burn out the starter motor
w
indings.
o
Do not usea meter
illumination
bulb rated for other than
voltage or wattage
specified
in the wiring diagram, as
the meter or gauge panel could be warped by excessive
heat radiated from the bulb.
OTake care not to short the leads that are directly
connected to the battery
positive
(+) term
inal
to the
chassis ground.
OTroubles may involve one or in some cases all items.
Never replace a defective part w
ithout
determ
ining
what
CAUSED the
failure.
If the failu
re
was caused by some
other item or
items,
they too must be repaired or
replaced, or the new replacement will soon fail
again.
o
Make sure
all
connectors in the
circuit
are clean and
tight, and
examine
wires for signs of
burning,
fraying,
etc.
Poor wires and bad connections will affect electrical
system
operation.
o
Measure coil and winding resistance when the part is
cold (at room temperature).
