4-39. Brake Pressure Switch.
a. General. The pressure switch is located on the
rearward structure member of the battery carrier,
adjacent to the hydraulic oil tank. For access,
remove the left engine side panel. From this access
point, the device is located high and to the left. An
alternate access is through the battery carrier,
adjacent to the hydraulic oil tank. The switch is
activated when the accumulator hydraulic pressure
drops below 300 psi and a buzzer warning indicates
that it is unsafe to operate the forklift truck.
b. Testing.
(1) Disconnect one of the two wire leads that go
to the brake pressure switch.
(2) Start and operate the engine for at least
one minute to build up the hydraulic oil pressure in
the accumulator.
(3) Using a multimeter, and with one wire lead
disconnected, test for continuity across the two wire
lead terminals. There should be no continuity in-
(4) Stop the engine and operate the brake pedal
several times until you are sure that all hydraulic
pressure in the accumulator is exhausted.
{5) Again, test across the terminals. This time
there should be continuity indicated.
(6) Replace a defective brake pressure switch.
