2f3e5fd0 Check and replacement of fuses

Fig. 1.174. Examples of the fused and normal fuses

If headlights or other electric components do not work, then check fuses. If any fuses fused, then they need to be replaced (fig. 1.174).
Switch off ignition and idle components. Extend on yourself the fuse and check it.
Define what of fuses is faulty. On a cover of the block of fuses the name of a chain of each fuse is shown.
Fuses of A type can be taken by means of a stripper. The location of a stripper is shown in the drawing.
If you are not sure that the safety lock fused, try to replace this safety lock with it of which serviceability you are sure.
If the fuse fused, install the new fuse in a clip.
Install the fuse only with the nominal current specified on a cover of the block of fuses.
If there is no spare fuse, then in emergency situation it is possible to extend the safety lock "MIR HTR", "CIG" or "POWER POINT" which are not of great importance for normal driving and to use if it has the same nominal current.
If there is no opportunity to use the fuse with the same nominal current, then use that which has lower value, but as it is possible closer to nominal. If the nominal rate of current is lower, than specified, the fuse can fuse again, but it is not a sign of any problem. Surely as soon as possible try to buy the corresponding fuse and to return the safety lock replacing it to an initial clip.
It is recommended to buy a set of spare fuses and to store it in the car for emergencies.
If the new safety lock at once fuses, then it indicates existence of a problem in electric system.

It is forbidden to use the fuse with higher nominal current or to use any subject instead of a safety lock. It can cause serious damage and lead to the fire.
