The relay


For electric current giving to components of some of accessories of an electric equipment of the car relays are used. Infringement of serviceability of functioning of the relay conducts to refusal of a component served by it.
In case of suspicion occurrence on malfunction any of the relay, it should be removed and subjected diagnostic check in dealer branch of the company or a specialised repair truck. Replacement of the failed relay is made in gathering.

The relay represents the switch which depending on appointment carries out following functions:
1 Includes a starting current at a finding of a power chain in other place and gives the chance applications thus low-current cables and inclusion contacts.
2 some chains of a current Operate inclusion.
3 Includes a chain through established time that, in particular, it is used at management of screen wiper work.
The majority of the relay settles down in the separate block having a different design for cars till 1997 and after 1997 of release. The relay has a certain designation and differ among themselves depending on a year of release of the car only by means of the resulted illustrations.

The panel of the relay for the car till the end of 1996 of release is shown on an illustration.

It is necessary to mean some changes in the designs which have occurred on cars from the middle of 1995 of release. These changes are designated by year of release 1995:
1 = К18, a sound signal
2 = К8, a screen wiper
3 = К5, an antifog headlight
4 = the conditioner till 1995 of release
5 = a headlight headlight
6 = К69, parking and back lanterns till 1995 of release
6 = К148, parking and back lanterns since 1995 of release
7 = К73, a head headlight till 1995 of release
7 = К157, a head headlight since 1995 of release
8 = К7, the fan (with the conditioner till 1995 of release) and the fan since 1995 of release
8 = К92, the fan without the conditioner till 1995 of release

The maintenance of the panel of the relay since 1997 of release clearly from resulted below the description. Apparently from an illustration, a relay arrangement identical, but the relay carries out other functions:
1 = К18, a sound signal
2 = К8, a windshield cleaner
3 = К5, an antifog headlight
4 = К140, a light signal
5 = К4, a passing light
6 = К148, parking and a tail light
7 = К157, a headlight
8 = К7, a heater

At some cars in an impellent compartment additional relays which here on are considered are established.
If the chain or the device operated the relay, has malfunction, for check it is possible to include the corresponding consumer of a current. If the relay is serviceable, click is audible. From this it is possible to assume that malfunction is available in the consumer of a current or bringing wires. If the relay has no food it means presence of damage to bringing wires. In this case malfunction comes to light replacement of the relay by the serviceable.
At relay replacement it is necessary to mean that outwardly the relay can have the same appearance, but is intended for other purposes.

1. For relay replacement switch off ignition.
2. Take out the relay and insert the new.
