The procedures contained in this specification cover the laboratory testing of Exterior Lamps for use in automotive road illumination. The following tests are intended to be run under the following conditions. This document shall be applied to systems that meet the requirements for design, performance and validation established by government standards. If other manufacture’s components are intended to be approved for use in the lamp assembly, then those possible combinations of components shall be considered a new lamp assembly and shall also be tested.

This document gives general guidelines to be used during the connector design stage. Various guidelines may not apply in all situations. Therefore, sound engineering judgment must be used in their application. Consider these guidelines as the basis for connector and wiring DFMEA’s. Items in this document are grouped by DFMEA functional requirements. Groups are as follows: Electrical Continuity Electrical Isolation/Sealing Device Assembly Harness Assembly Vehicle Assembly Materials Serviceability Environmental Requirements High Voltage (≥ 60V) Application Requirements

IMPORTANT NOTICE: In any intended vehicle application, if the products covered by this specification are, or may be, subjected to conditions beyond those described in this document, they must pass special tests simulating the actual conditions to be encountered before they can be considered acceptable for actual vehicle application. Products certified by their supplier as having passed specific applicable portions of this specification are not to be used in applications where conditions may exceed those for which the product has been satisfactorily tested. The Authorized Person is the final authority as to what tests are to be performed on his or her parts and for what purpose these tests are required. He or she is also the final authority for resolving any questions related to testing to this specification and to authorizing any deviations to the equipment or procedures contained in this specification. Any such deviation must be documented and included in the final test report.

This standard outlines the conditions that enhance the risk of hydrogen embrittlement of steel and define the relief procedures required to minimize the risk of hydrogen embrittlement. It is intended to control the process. Hydrogen embrittlement of steel, which can cause brittle fractures under stress, occurs as a result of the absorption of hydrogen during cleaning, phosphate coating and plating processes. The susceptibility to hydrogen embrittlement increases with increasing stress (internal or externally applied stress) and increasing material strength. Hardness readings in this specification are in Vickers scale. SAE J417 should be referred to for conversion to other scales.

A bolt-load retention (BLR) test is a practical test to determine the bolt load of a fastener joint with time and at given temperatures. There are three types of BLR tests described in this standard, namely general-purpose test, design-purpose test, and screening material test. A general-purpose BLR test may be used for screening materials, while a design-purpose BLR test is usually used to verify the BLR behavior of a specific joint. The screening material test is an example of the general-purpose test for typical automotive applications.

This specification is a general level subsystem light source specification that establishes test requirements of a Gas Discharge Light Source (GDLS) subsystem for use on passenger vehicles. The completed test data to this test specification is intended to be provided to the OEM by the Tier one lamp set maker as part of the lamp assembly PPAP. Re-testing shall be required if any portion of the approved GDLS experiences a design, manufacturing or component change. This document shall be applied to systems that meet the requirements for design, performance and validation established by government standards. The subsystem is defined as the ballast, igniter and light source and shall be tested as a subsystem and considered one test sample for the entire test sequence. A failure of any component in the test sample shall constitute a failure of the entire sample. Substitution or replacement of only the light source shall be allowed during testing.

This test procedure is intended to evaluate and/or validate electrical ground schemes for use on the body or chassis. There are two classes based on the expected environmental conditions. Exposed Grounds can be located anywhere in the vehicle (except on the powertrain) and is the class for which most schemes should be tested. Unexposed Grounds can only be used in the passenger compartment or trunk and as such are special cases. This procedure as written is not intended for testing powertrain grounds where high temperatures and vibration levels may be encountered. These situations may require modifications to this procedure and are left to the Responsible Engineer to determine.
