Nissan Altima 2007-2012 Service Manual: L Terminal circuit

Description

The terminal “2” (L) circuit controls the charge warning lamp. The charge warning lamp illuminates when the ignition switch is set to ON or START. When the generator is providing sufficient voltage with the engine running, the charge warning lamp will go off. If the charge warning lamp illuminates with the engine running, a malfunction is indicated.
