16.16. The block of safety locks and the relay, established in car salon

The relay block

1 – the relay of the fan of a radiator;
2 – the relay of a heater of back glass;
3 – the relay of the emergency light alarm system;
4 – the relay of a sound signal.

Safety locks serve to break off a chain when the current strength will reach certain value to protect elements and wires which can be damaged too strong current.

The sharp increase in a current strength is usually caused by malfunction in a chain, more often short circuit.


The relay block is established in salon of the car at the basis of a forward rack. The general relay is established on an arm of support of a radio receiver.

1. An ohmmeter check up conductivity of fuses.
2. If the safety lock has fused, means in a chain which it protects, there is a short circuit. Before safety lock replacement define and eliminate the short circuit reason.

The prevention

The safety lock fuses during 15 with if the current proceeding through a safety lock, exceeds its rating value.


The prevention

Be convinced that the safety lock is reliably fixed in a nest. Check up, whether there corresponds capacity of a safety lock of a corresponding chain which it protects. Before safety lock removal, switch off a corresponding chain (or ignition), then get a safety lock from contacts. In a safety lock the wire should be visible; if the safety lock has fused, the wire will be torn or fused.

Always use safety locks of demanded capacity. Never use a safety lock of other capacity and do not replace it with something another.

Do not replace a safety lock more than once, without having eliminated a malfunction source. The current protected by a safety lock, is specified from above a safety lock: pay attention that safety locks have various colours for simplification of identification.

If the safety lock fuses right after replacements, do not replace it again, yet do not establish, and do not eliminate a cause of defect. In most cases a cause of defect is the short circuit caused by a low insulation. If the safety lock protects some chains, try to find a chain because of which fuses a safety lock, including each of chains by turns (if it is possible). Always have the complete set of spare safety locks of various capacity in the car.
