Charging System
Regulator Circuit Test-3rd Step:
Connect the test light and the 12 V battery in the same
manner as specified in the "Regulator Circuit Test-1st
Momentarily apply 24 V to the BR terminal by adding a 12
V battery.
Check Y1, Y2, and Y3 terminals respectively.
Do not apply more than 24 V to the regulator/recti-
fier and do not leave the 24 V applied for more than
a few seconds, or the unit will be damaged.
If the test light does not light when the 24 V was applied
momentarily to the BR terminal, the regulator/rectifier is
defective. Replace it.
If the regulator/rectifier passes all of the tests described,
it may still be defective. If the charging system still does
not work properly after checking all of the components
and the battery, test the regulator/rectifier by replacing it
with a known good unit.
