CHASSIS ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
The electrical system is a 12-volt, negative ground type. Power for the lights and all electrical accessories is supplied by a lead/acid type battery, which is charged by the alternator.
This Chapter covers repair and service procedures for the various electrical components not associated with the engine. Information on the battery, alternator and starter motor can be found in Chapter 5.
It should be noted that when portions of the electrical system are serviced, the cable should be disconnected from the negative battery terminal to prevent electrical shorts and/or fires.
