3.11. The storage battery is not recharged

On the car two sources of a current — the storage battery and the generator. The storage battery is used at start-up of the engine and for a food by an electric current by pressure 12 In a starter and other consumers at the idle engine.
When the engine works, the basic source of a current — the generator — provides with an electric current all consumers, including ignition system, and charges the storage battery.
If in a combination of devices the red alarm lamp of the category of the storage battery burns, means, the current does not arrive from the generator in an onboard network and the stock of energy of the storage battery is spent. Operation of the car with burning alarm lamp of the category of the storage battery is inadmissible, as the short circuit of conducting leading to a fire in a motor compartment of the car can sometimes be the reason of fire of a lamp. Stop the car, muffle the engine and define, what malfunction has led to lamp fire. If the cause of defect not in short circuit and the storage battery is charged completely, it is possible to reach to garage and without the generator, but to try to eliminate malfunction on a place is better.
