For giving of an electric current to components of some of accessories of electric equipment of the car relays are used. Violation of serviceability of functioning of the relay conducts to refusal of a component served by it.
In case of suspicion emergence on malfunction any of the relay, it should be removed and subjected to diagnostic check in dealer office of the company or a specialized repair truck. Replacement of the failed relay is made assembled.

The relay represents the switch which depending on appointment carries out the following functions:
1 Includes a starting current when finding a power chain in other place and gives the chance applications thus low-current cables and inclusion contacts.
2 some chains of a current Operate inclusion.
3 Includes a chain through established time that, in particular, it is used at management of screen wiper work.
The majority of the relay settles down in the separate block having a different design for cars till 1997 and after 1997 of release. The relay has a certain designation and differ among themselves depending on a year of release of the car only by means of the given illustrations.

The relay panel for the car till the end of 1996 of release is shown on an illustration.

It is necessary to mean some changes in the designs which have occurred on cars from the middle of 1995 of release. These changes are designated year of release 1995:
 1= К18, sound signal
 2= К8, screen wiper
 3= К5, fog light
 4= the conditioner till 1995 of release
 5= driving beam of a headlight
 6= К69, parking and back lamps till 1995 of release
 6= К148, parking and back lamps since 1995 of release
 7= К73, a head headlight till 1995 of release
 7= К157, a head headlight since 1995 of release
 8= К7, the fan (with the conditioner till 1995 of release) and the fan since 1995 of release
 8= К92, the fan without the conditioner till 1995 of release

The maintenance of the panel of the relay since 1997 of release clearly from given below the description. Apparently from an illustration, a relay arrangement identical, but the relay carries out other functions:
 1= К18, sound signal
 2= К8, windshield cleaner
 3= К5, fog light
 4= К140, light signal
 5= К4, passing beam
 6= К148, parking and tail light
 7= К157, headlight
 8= К7, heater

At some cars in an impellent compartment additional relays which here on are considered are established.
If the chain or the device operated by the relay, has malfunction, for check it is possible to include the corresponding consumer of a current. If the relay is serviceable, click is audible. From this it is possible to assume that malfunction is available in the consumer of a current or bringing wires. If the relay has no food, it means existence of damage to bringing wires. In this case malfunction comes to light replacement of the relay by the serviceable.
At replacement of the relay it is necessary to mean that outwardly the relay can have the same appearance, but is intended for other purposes.

1. For replacement of the relay switch off ignition.
2. Take out the relay and insert the new.
