14.6.3. Main malfunctions of the generator

GENERAL INFORMATION

REASON
ELIMINATION METHOD
At inclusion of ignition the control lamp of a battery charging does not burn
The accumulator is discharged
Check tension and, if necessary, charge the accumulator
Unreliable connection or oxidation of plugs of the accumulator
Check reliability of connection and, if necessary, clear accumulator plugs
The wire on generator contact is unreliably tightened or oxidized
Check and, if necessary, tighten a fastening wire to the generator
The control bulb fused
Replace a bulb
The tension regulator is faulty
Check and, if necessary, replace a tension regulator
Wire break between the generator, the lock of ignition and a control bulb
Check tension on a chain, beginning from the generator
Generator brushes leaky adjoin to contact rings
Check length of brushes and freedom of their moving in holders
The winding of excitement of the generator burned down
Check a rotor and diodes which at detection of defects it is necessary to replace
The control lamp of a battery charging does not die away at increase in turns of the engine
Whether will pull insufficiently the belt is worn-out poliklinovy
Check a condition of a poliklinovy belt and the mechanism of a tension of a belt
Idling coupling (only TDI) is faulty
Remove the generator and turn counter-clockwise a generator shaft. If the mobile surface of a belt pulley thus does not turn, means, coupling of idling is faulty
The regulator of tension or the generator is faulty
Disconnect from a back part of the generator a wire (D +) and include ignition. If the control lamp still did not light up, means, the generator or a tension regulator is faulty
Brushes of a regulator of tension are worn-out
Check length of brushes and, if necessary, replace them
The tension regulator is faulty
Check a regulator of tension and, if necessary, replace it
The generator is faulty
Check the generator and, if necessary, replace it
Defect of the wire connecting the generator to a regulator of tension
Disconnect a dark blue wire in the electric T32A socket of the block 12 of a distributive box. If after that the control lamp does not burn, means, a wire of D + will close on weight and it is necessary to replace a wire
The distributive box is faulty
Disconnect a dark blue wire from the electric T32A socket. If after that the control lamp lights up, means, the distributive block is faulty
The control lamp of a battery charging burns at the switched-off ignition
Short circuit of the diode
Check and, if necessary, replace the diode
