Repair B3-B4/Passat B3-B4 Volkswagen Passat>> Electric equipment>> Storage battery>> Check of system of a charging of the storage battery
If the control lamp of a charging on a combination of devices does not burn after ignition inclusion, check connection of electric wires to the generator. Also check serviceability of a control lamp. Check integrity of a wire from the generator to a control lamp. If the control lamp and a wire connecting it are serviceable, it is necessary to make generator repair.
If the control lamp of a charging of the storage battery continues to burn after engine start, switch off the engine and check a condition and a tension of a driving belt of the generator. If the tension of a belt corresponds to norm, carry out generator repair.
If the tension developed by the generator, leaves out of admissible limits, check a tension regulator.
Connect the exact voltmeter to plugs of the storage battery and start up the engine.
Increase frequency of rotation of the engine and, after stabilization of indications of the voltmeter, check, that they were in limits of 13,5-14,6 Century.
Include everything electric consumers (headlights, heating of back glass, a heater) and check operation of the generator. Thus the tension which is given out by the generator, should be in limits of 13-14 Century.
If tension of the generator does not correspond to norm, worn-out brushes or weak springs of brushes, malfunction of a regulator of the tension, the punched diode, break in a winding or wear of rings of the generator can be the reason for that.
