Search of malfunctions


  1. The lamp does not burn at the tightened emergency brake: to check a safety lock.
  2. To remove and check the glow lamp.
  3. If it did not result in success, to release the switch behind at the lever of turning on of the parking brake, to disconnect a wire from the switch (behind near the lever) and to bring the plug to the bared metal.
  4. If the lamp lights up now, so the switch is faulty.
  5. The lamp does not die away at the removed parking brake: to disconnect a wire from the switch of the parking brake as it is described above, but to leave the plug to be groundless.
  6. If the lamp dies away, so the switch is faulty or installed incorrectly.
  7. If it continues to burn, so the cable somewhere frayed and there is a short circuit on "weight".
