Check of serviceability of functioning and replacement of the sensor switch of stoplights



1. The sensor switch is located at the left on an arm near the top part of a pedal of a foot brake, - the sensor switch of a control system of speed is located on the right. The sensor switch provides inclusion of stoplights in assemblies of the back combined lamps when squeezing a pedal of a foot brake.

2. Visually make sure of serviceability of operation of stoplights when squeezing a pedal and of their shutdown at a pedal otpuskaniye.
3. If stoplights do not join, make sure of correctness of adjustments of a pedal (see the Section Adjustment of a Pedal of a Foot Brake), then execute adjustment actually of the sensor switch.
4. The sensor switch fastens on a basic arm by means of a lock-nut. Weaken a lock-nut and rotation of the sensor switch achieve that gap size between an end face of its plunger and an emphasis of a pedal did not exceed the limit of the range of 0.3 ÷ 1.0 mm (the plunger has to be in a free state). Tighten a lock-nut and repeat check of serviceability of functioning of the sensor switch.
5. If adjustment of position of the sensor switch does not lead to correction of a situation, therefore, violation of giving of food on the sensor switch, or defect actually of assembly takes place. By means of the voltmeter or a lamp sampler check presence of tension on the sensor switch socket. At the released pedal tension has to take place only on one of socket plugs, at squeezed out - on both. The faulty sensor switch is subject to replacement.



1. Disconnect an electrical wiring from the sensor switch.
2. Weaken a lock-nut and turn out the sensor switch from a basic arm.
3. Installation is made upside-down.
4. Execute adjustment of a pedal of a foot brake (see the Section Adjustment of a Pedal of a Foot Brake), then, in case of need adjust the sensor switch (see above).
