Repair B3-B4/Passat B3-B4 Volkswagen Passat>> Electric equipment>> Generator>> Check of system of start-up of the engine
If the starter at a key povorachivaniye in the ignition lock in the relevant situation does not work, the following reasons are possible:
–       the storage battery is discharged;
–       violation of an electric chain between the ignition lock, the traction relay, the storage battery and a starter;
–       malfunction of the traction relay.
For check of a condition of the storage battery include headlights. If headlights grow dull after several seconds of work, it specifies that the storage battery is discharged. If headlights burn brightly, include ignition and start up a starter. If headlights grow dull at starter start, it specifies that tension is brought to a starter and damages are necessary for looking for in it. If at inclusion of a starter of a headlight continue to burn brightly and there is no click in a starter, it specifies that there is a damage to an electric power-supply circuit of a starter. If the starter rotates slowly, but the storage battery obviously in a good condition, indicates it malfunction of a starter or existence of high resistance in a starter power-supply circuit.
If the starter power-supply circuit is faulty, disconnect wires from a starter, the traction relay and the grounding tire from the engine. Completely clear all contacts and repeatedly connect wires. Connect to starter contacts the voltmeter and be convinced that on it full tension of the storage battery moves.
If the storage battery and electric chains in a normal state, remove the contact socket of the traction relay, connect to it the voltmeter and check that on it tension moves at starter inclusion.
Contacts of the traction relay can be checked, connecting the voltmeter between positive contact of the engine of a starter and "earth". At ignition inclusion the voltmeter should show full tension. If tension is absent, contacts of the traction relay are faulty.
If the electric chain and the traction relay are serviceable, it means that the starter engine is faulty.
