GENERAL INFORMATION

If at inclusion of a starter the click of the traction relay is not heard and the engine of a starter does not work, check whether tension on the plug 50 moves. At start of the engine tension on the plug 50 has to be not less than 10 Century. If voltage below 10 V, check an electric power-supply circuit of a starter. For check of a condition of an electric chain of a starter perform the following operations.

Tighten the emergency brake and install the gear shifting lever in neutral situation. Include ignition.

Using an additional wire with a section of 4 mm2, connect plugs 30 and 50.

If the engine of a starter begins to rotate, so the electric power-supply circuit of a starter is faulty.
REASON
ELIMINATION METHOD
The starter does not work
The accumulator is discharged Charge the accumulator.
At connection of plugs 30 and 50 the starter begins to work Restore an electric power-supply circuit of a starter.
Break or short circuit on the mass of a wire of a starter Check a condition of wires and, if necessary, replace them.
Reduction of current because of weak fastening or oxidation of contacts of wires Clear contacts and reliably fix wires.
There is no tension on the plug of the 50th traction relay Break of an electric power-supply circuit of a starter which needs to be restored.
The starter rotates slowly and does not turn a bent shaft of the engine
The accumulator is discharged Charge the accumulator.
Reduction of current because of weak fastening or oxidation of contacts of wires Clear contacts and reliably fix wires.
Coal brushes insufficiently densely adjoin to a collector or have defects Check a state and, if necessary, replace coal brushes.
Coal brushes do not contact with a collector Replace coal brushes.
The working surface of a collector has damages Working surface of a collector or replace with Pereshlifuyte an anchor.
Tension given to a starter less than 10 V Check the relay of a starter or the traction relay.
The traction relay is faulty Replace the traction relay.
The starter works normally, but does not turn a bent shaft of the engine
Pollution or defect of a driving gear wheel of a starter Clear or replace a driving gear wheel of a starter.
The gear wreath of a flywheel is worn-out Replace a flywheel.
There is no unhooking of a gear wheel of a starter to a gear wreath of a flywheel
The leading gear wheel of a starter or screw cutting on a starter shaft are polluted or damaged Clear or replace the leading gear wheel or an anchor of a starter.
The traction relay is faulty Replace the traction relay.
Elasticity decreased or the returnable spring broke Replace a returnable spring.
The starter continues to work after switching off with its ignition key
Burning of contacts of the traction relay Immediately switch off ignition or remove a weight wire from the accumulator.
The lock of ignition does not disconnect a starter Immediately remove a weight wire from the accumulator and replace the ignition lock.
