Check of a condition of the battery and care it

Address also to materials of the Head of System of an electric equipment of the engine. The storage battery is placed at the left in a forward part of an impellent compartment.

At work with the battery it is necessary to undertake certain security measures. At battery banks always there is extremely an inflammable hydrogen, therefore do not suppose an arrangement about the battery of open fire. The battery electrolit represents a solution of sulfuric acid which at hit in eyes or on open sites of a body causes serious traumas. Besides, acid corrodes clothes and paints. At battery switching-off always the first disconnect a weight cable, and connect it in last turn!

Care of the battery is very important procedure for which performance the corresponding tool is required.


    Before the beginning of procedure of service always at first switch off the engine and disconnect all electrodevices, then disconnect a cable of weight from the battery. Considered cars are completed with completely sealed batteries which are not demanding special leaving. Check of level of electrolit Is supposed only, and updating of its level is not provided. Check up electrolit level in each of банок batteries – it should be between marks MIN and MAX on the battery case. Some batteries are supplied by the colour indicator which is clarified at low level of electrolit. If necessary the unattended accumulator is subject to replacement. If the served battery is used, add only the distilled water and then close covers банок.

Overflow банок can lead to transfusion of electrolit during the accelerated gymnastics that will cause corrosion and damage of the components nearest to the battery.

    If the positive plug and a collar of a wire of the battery are equipped by a rubber protector, make sure that it is not torn and not damaged. It should close the plug completely. It is necessary to examine periodically an external condition of the battery on presence of such damages, as cracks in the case. Check up reliability of a tightening of collars of wires of the battery, providing good electric connection. Check up each of wires on all length on presence of cracks and attritions of isolation and spending core. At detection of traces of corrosion (usually representing a friable touch of white colour) disconnect wires from plugs, smooth out their wire brush and again connect. Corrosion occurrence can be reduced to a minimum by installation of specially processed washers, or by drawing on plugs and collars of wires of a layer безкислотного vaseline or suitable greasing after their connection. Make sure that the battery pallet is in a satisfactory condition, and the bolt of a fixing collar is reliably tightened. If the battery acted in film from the pallet, track, that in an installation time on it any extraneous subjects did not lie. At зажимании a fixing collar do not tighten its bolt too hardly. From the pallet, cases of the battery and surrounding surfaces it is possible to remove traces of corrosion by means of a water solution of baking soda. Put a mix a small brush, allow to it to stand and then смойте plentiful quantity at its finest. Metal surfaces of the car, подвергшиеся corrosion, it is necessary to cover with a first coat on a zinc basis and then to paint.

The additional information on the battery and on start of the engine from the auxiliary power supply can be found in the Head of System of an electric equipment of the engine and in Introduction.
