3.3.3. Power cables


1. Periodically check cables on all length, damage, cracking or a burn-out of isolation of cables, and also corrosion are not allowed. Unreliable connection of the battery can cause refusals at engine start-up, and also deteriorations of operational qualities of the engine.
2. Check a condition of connections of poles with plugs, existence on them of corrosion, cracks and weakening of fastening of wires. Existence of a white being shelled raid under isolation in a place of the plug testifies to corrosion of conductors of a cable and need of its replacement. Check existence of corrosion and deformations on plugs and a condition of bolts of fastening.
3. At removal of cables always disconnect the battery from weight first of all, and connect to weight during the most last moment, in order to avoid a zakorachivaniye of poles of the battery the tool by which plugs are tightened. If it is necessary to replace only a cable of a positive pole, at first disconnect a cable from a negative pole.


1. Disconnect from the battery old cables, track laying of cables on their length and find places of their fastening to a starter and to weight, disconnect cables from the traction relay of a starter and weight. Remember a route on which the cable is laid to lay a new cable to the place of being in operation.
2. If cables are replaced new, getting new cables, grasp with itself old. It is the extremely important, that new cables in accuracy corresponded to the old. The cable of a positive pole is easy for distinguishing from a cable negative, – isolation of a cable of a positive pole of usually red color, these cables have bigger cross-section section, the storage plug differs in big diameter. Isolation of a cable of connection with mass of black color, cross-section section and diameter of the plug is less, than at a cable of a positive pole of the battery.
3. Clear carvings of fastening of cables of the battery on the traction relay of a starter and on a body, remove corrosion traces.


For protection from corrosion grease carvings with technical vaseline or special protective structure for storage plugs.

4. Attach a cable to the traction relay of a starter or to weight, reliably tighten nuts and fastening bolts.
5. Before accession to the battery of a new cable, be convinced that the cable has sufficient length, and will be established without a tension.
6. At first attach a cable to a positive pole of the battery, then to the negative.
