Option 1: Bypass starter switch.
Locate the starter switch.
Remove the wire from the starter switch.
Use a jumper wire or touch the wires, removed in step (b), together.
After engine starts, disconnect jumper, or leads.
Insulate lead with tape.
(2) Option 2: Jump starter terminals.
(a) Gain access to engine starter.
(b) Using a piece of wire or suitable object, connect the main power terminal to the solenoid terminal.
(c) After engine starts, disconnect jumper.
Record the BDAR action taken. When the mission is completed, as soon as practicable, repair the generator using
standard maintenance procedures.
7-7. Fuse or Circuit Breaker Failure. A short or overload in a circuit will cause the fuse to burn out or the circuit
breaker to trip. The circuit becomes inoperative. A temporary repair can be made by bypassing the protection device
with straight wiring or by replacing the fuse with tinfoil, wire, ball point pen springs, or similar conductor. Use of solder
will provide some amount of circuit protection. Damage to the equipment can occur when the circuits are not properly
fused. Section III. WIRING HARNESS
7-8. General. Wiring harnesses are normally replaced when extensive damage occurs. Because of improvements or
different configurations, replacement harnesses from other generators of the same family may use some different style
connectors. Try to obtain harnesses from an identical model; however, connectors can be exchanged with the damaged
harness. The same procedure is followed to change a complete connector or splice a complete harness. If a wire is
damaged but the fault cannot be located, it should be replaced with a jumper wire.
7-9. Wiring Harness Damage. Wire harness repairs are generally a series of single wire repairs. Establishing circuit
continuity in a bundle of wires is difficult because individual wires are not color coded. Wires must be identified before
they are connected. Most essential electrical functions can be rapidly restored by using jumper wires. An alphanumeric
code is imprinted onto the outer insulating jacket of each wire. A point to point run of each wire can be determined from
the troubleshooting diagram plate and the alphanumeric code.
