INTRODUCTION TO THE HMMWV - OD1615 - LESSON 4/TASK 1
The glow plugs in the HMMWV are controlled by a fast start control system.
The controller, located in the coolant outlet manifold, is a thermal model
of the glow plugs and turns the glow plugs on and off by monitoring engine
In the lessons and tasks contained in this subcourse, the characteristics
and operation of the systems that comprise the HMMWV were discussed. From
these lessons and tasks, we see how all of these systems fit together to
produce a working automotive vehicle.
If one or more of these systems is
disabled or removed from the vehicle, it becomes virtually useless because
there would be no way of starting and operating the vehicle, or of supplying
the power to propel, steer, and stop the vehicle.
