Nissan Sentra Service Manual: L terminal circuit (open)

Description

The “L” terminal circuit controls the charge warning lamp. The charge warning lamp turns ON 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 turns OFF. If the charge warning lamp illuminates with the engine running, a malfunction is indicated.
