10.8.1. Features of a design

On cars apply the block headlights uniting in themselves a dvukhnitevy lamp of near and far light, a lamp of dimensional light and a lamp of indexes of turn.
Fog lights.
Fog lights can be installed on cars in the lower part of a front bumper. Fog lights can be included only at the included external lighting.
Back fog lamp.
The lamp of a back fog lamp is established in the left back lamp. The fog lamp can be included the button on the dashboard only at the included external lighting.
Indexes of turn.
Lamps of indexes of turn are established in block headlights, back and side lamps. Indexes of turn include the left understeering switch (lamps of one board depending on position of the switch) or the switch of the alarm system (all lamps at the same time).
Electroproofreader of light of headlights.
Install on cars the electroproofreader of light of headlights allowing to change the direction of a beam of light of headlights in the vertical plane depending on car loading.

If headlights suddenly began to shine dimly, and at inclusion of a signal of turn the dimensional lamp blinks, restore contact of a "mass" wire with a body.
Take yourself in a habit to regularly change lamps (especially head light of headlights). Over time the flask of a lamp grows turbid, brightness of a lamp decreases. This process happens quite slowly, and the driver does not notice gradual deterioration in illumination of the road.
Recently there are more and more cars at which headlights shine as a New Year tree, various shades of blue color. All this is called the word "xenon" and it is considered very abrupt. No doubt, the xenon headlights established regularly on latest models of foreign cars light the road and the car with them looks much more effectively much better. It is no wonder that many try to improve too the car especially as now on counters the mass of "xenon" lamps of various production appeared (most often Chinese). Be not bought on cheap stuff: such lamps have nothing in common with the real xenon gas-discharge lamps without incandescence threads. These are usual lamps with the painted glass. Light-transmitting ability of such glass is much lower, than at standard lamps, threads at forgeries are, as a rule, established out of focus, the headlight with such lamp at external showiness practically lights nothing, will only in addition mercilessly stick together counter drivers. Besides producers of such lamps to compensate decrease in a light stream, increase their power much. Often their installation leads to an oplavleniye of isolation of wires and damage of electric equipment. And also the fire is possible. Do not buy "headache" for the money better, and buy usual lamps of high quality.
Sooner or later lamps in back lamps fuse. It would seem what it is simpler — to take the new bulb suitable by the size of a socle and tension and to establish it instead of fused. However consider that in back lamps lamps with an identical socle, but different power are applied: 5W and 21W. And it is an important trifle. Do not mix a lamp in places: 5-watt lamps establish for dimensional light, 21-watt — in indexes of turn and stoplights. If you establish low-power lamps in stoplights and indexes of turn, other drivers simply will not see your signals in rainy weather. And powerful lamps in "dimensions" will disturb very much drivers who go behind and to irritate them. Corresponding there will be also their attitude towards you.
