7.2.7. Switch of a lamp of a backing


Inclusion of a lamp of a backing is made by the switch of plunzherny type which is screwed in in the top part of a case of a transmission. If the lamp of a backing does not join, first of all check integrity of the fuse.

To check serviceability of the switch, remove from it the electric socket and, using an ohmmeter, check resistance between switch contacts at the included reverse gear. Resistance should be equal 0. Otherwise the switch is subject to replacement.


1. For improvement of access to the switch remove the accumulator and an accumulator support.
2. Disconnect the electric socket and unscrew the switch (it is specified by an arrow) from a transmission case.


Installation is made in sequence, return to removal.
