Peugeot 405 Manual

General information and precautions
Body electrical system / General information and precautions

Warning: Before carrying out any work on the electrical system, read the precautions in УSafety first!Ф at the beginning of this manual, and in Chapter 5.

The electrical system is of 12-volt negative earth 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, prior to working on any component in the electrical system, the battery negative terminal should first be disconnected, to prevent the possibility of electrical short-circuits and/or fires.

Caution: If the radio/cassette player fitted has an anti-theft security code, (the standard unit has), refer to the precaution in the Reference section of this manual before disconnecting the battery.
